Cutaneous lupus

Not finding what you want try our lupus search page
 

Cutaneous lupus which accounts for about 10% of all lupus cases affects only the skin and can create various kinds of skin lesions. A red, raised, scaly, coin-shaped rash is the classic rash that appears with this form of lupus. This localized rash occurs most frequently on the face, although it may appear on other parts of the body as well. Scarring often develops as the rash heals. Because exposure to ultraviolet light often triggers cutaneous lupus, it is recommended that individuals with this form limit their sun exposure and use sunscreen when out of doors. Some people with cutaneous lupus go on to develop systemic lupus erythematous (SLE).
