after 6 months of a terrible rash the dermatologist finally did a biopsy. the results he said was lupus, probably drug induced due to having infliximab infusion for crohn's (crohn's for 18 years). i have had these infusions for 8 years, but in researching lupus i have had sympoms on and off for 15 yrs, painful joints, sun sensitivity, abdo pain even when crohn's in remission, and fevers of unknown origin (although gp usually puts everything down to crohn's). would appreciate some advice as whether biopsies just indicate lupus or whether they can distinguish between the different lupus. thank you
