  • Hi Jenni. I'm Casey, I was diagnosed 3 weeks ago with lupus. I have the butterfly rash on my face and the itchy blisters on my hands feet and knees and my legs just itch all over. I've got my apt today to get some hydroxy thingy tablets. I'm dreading it. I have my friends 40th birthday party at the wknd n I'm dreading it too. Just know I'll get asked 'what's that on your face?' erugh! At least we're not alone eh, hope you feel happier soon :) x

  • Hi Casey, No we are not alone i always feel like people are looking at me when my face is bad and thinking they can catch it. I was awake in the night scratching and sore horrible aint it. I hope the hospital went well for you and I hope your ok for the weekend :) xx
