I used to have lovely, smooth, white skin. Since being diagnosed with SLE and taking medication, the quality of my skin has changed dramatically: I have small red bumps on my legs, broken capillaries on my legs, visible veins all over the place, the inside of my arms has a slight mottled appearance, though not full livedo reticularis. Now my face has broken capillaries here and there and has a rosy cheek appearance, whilst there is purple at the inner corner of my eyes.
My rheumatologist said it is normal for lupus and there is no point using any creams or medication for it. Whilst I get that, I wonder if I can do something to prevent it becoming worse.
Have you had similar experience and if so, what did you do about it?
