I have been diagnosed with SLE for 26 years now (Lucky I know to have a diagnosis so many years ago)
I have had all the manefestations over the years and all the drugs.
When I had my daughter 7 years ago we asked if she could be tested for SLE and were told only if she had sysmptons.
Over the past three years she has started getting rashes in the sun! as you can imagine my alarm bells went off.
My husband tells me Im being paranoid but he didnt live his childhood covered in itchy red rashes every time the sun came out as I did.
Should I get her tested so we know what we are deling with? Help?
