Does anybody have any good clear photos of symptoms of their vasculitis eg:- rash red eyes saddle nose spots ulcers damaged fingers toes?

We need pictures of these things for the new vasculitis Route Map and for the New Website.

They are surprisingly hard to come by as doctors and hospitals are reluctant to let others use them or sometimes they are copy right. Obviously they would be used anonymously and any photos that might be recognisable would be changed so the person will not be identified. please message me personally or email John. jandsmills@btinternet.com thank you

  • Hi Sue, it just so happens I have some very good photos of my rash the are on my phone and none show my face anyway I will upload them to my computer and then send them to you via your email addy. Hope this helps by the way you can use them for any other publications you think that might help others become aware of what Vasculitus is and debilitating it can be. Dave

  • Sent and on there way Sue.

  • Thank you...received them...they will be very helpful...:-)

  • I have some pictures of the rash on my legs - if they are any use please advise where I can send them.

    Also, a rhuematologist at the hospital where I was diagnosed took some pictures of my fingers (possibly my feet / ankles too) as I apparently had a slightly unusual manifestation at that time.

  • Hi,

    I will send you some of my 20 year old son's skin rash pictures. I have been taking pictures to put in his hospital file so I have quite a few.

    regards

    Elaine.
