My 12 year old daughter was diagnosed with SLE Lupus last July. She is on a variety of medication including myclophenolate and prednisolone (down to 5mg) and her health has greatly improved to the extent that she has been able to lead a pretty normal life,most of the time. Recently,however, she has been suffering from flaming red cheeks and sensitivity to temperature-almost like a hot flush! When this happens she can feel quite unwell-nauseous, headache and sometimes a sore throat. Her last blood test results were good and I wouldn't call the redness on her cheeks a rash, but this is really distressing her. Wondered if anyone else has had similar symptoms and if they have any tips for coping with these symptoms.
