I was told my lupus was stable. Suddenely I caught a cold from the kids, got a chest infection and sore blisters over hands and feet. I was very poorly and was put back on steroids and given anti-biotics. Have had painful red/purple blisters for 2 months now and have just been told it is vasculitis. Had no idea could get further auto-immune diseases even when on immuno-supressants. Apparently the immune response reacted aggressively at cold/chest infection. This triggered blisters/vasculitis. Still in shock because vasculitis is another scary disaese just like SLE that can affect any organ/part of body. Can anyone advise me if they have also experienced vasculitis and offer any hope please? Trying hard to understand it.
