My red capillies bursted during a bone narrow burn my face arms and thighs I have scares all over my arms. I am angry and I am tied of always being home only to the doctors cause of my low autimmune diease. I have RA and fibromyalgia. I try to o be happy in front of people I wear long sleeve so my scare don't show and keep God in my life.
Hello, you should build up strong confidence to fight against disease. Avoid sunshine. When you go out, you should pay attention to sunscreen. Avoid using photosensitive drugs, such as phenothiazine, hydrochlorothiazide, sulfonamides and griseofulvin. Avoid excessive fatigue and rest in bed during acute or active periods. Avoid colds or other infections. Strengthen resistance, pay attention to nutrition and vitamin supplementation.
How brave you are! You've been always fighting, you're a fighter, you should cheer for what you did. I think you did greater than most of people in this world. Keep moving! Whatever doesn't kill me makes me stronger, right?
For you that are just now dealing with Lupus, my heart goes out to you. Over 21 years ago I was told I HAD Lupus, I was in a panic, asking my doctor how did I get it, where it come from, how do I get rid of it. He was not much help. Here take this pill, no take this pill. It came down to the wonder drug Plaquel, never again would I take that. after three long years of fighting the side effects and trying to keep my job. I went cold turkey. This is not for everyone. It did work for me. I turned to Metaphysics to find out why I had gotten Lupus in the first place. IT WORKED FOR ME> I LEARNED THAT GOD HAD FORGIVEN ME FOR ANY THING I MAYBE PUNISHING MY SELF FOR EVEN BEFORE I was born. So, why should I keep do it then or now. The Lupus went away and has not returned that was 21 years ago.
Amazing and amén!
I have recently been diagnosed with lupus 2 months ago. This is all new to me. My skin is breaking out really bad. Looks like boils all over my body. Skin itches or feels like it's burning constantly. I wish there was a way to send photos of this outbreak. It's very depressing. I have a hard time sleeping at night.
Skin problem occurs in 40-70 percent of people with lupus, the sores is made worse by exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays from sunlight or artificial light. A dermatologist treats lupus skin rashes and lesions.
I was laying out at the beach and it happened to my skin it took me eight months of hiding from the Sun and light bulb staying covered up for that stuff to finally go away. Boils and it felt like acid on your skin when you're in the sunlight
Been living with skin rashes for past 10 yrs until I was diagnosed with lupus finally dermatologist put on an injection called Dupixent has worked great in my rashes

Hi Olivia

A diet plan for lupus includes:

Foods that can help fight inflammation such as fresh fruits and vegetables for that they are rich in antioxidants; 

Foods containing omega-3 fatty acids such as salmon, tuna, walnuts, flaxseed, canola oil and olive oil which may also be anti-inflammatory;

Meanwhile, a diet plan for lupus should aim to build stronger bones and muscles. Thus, foods high in calcium and vitamin D should be include such as low-fat or nonfat milk and yogurt and dark green vegetables.

On the other hand, it excludes foods that lead to inflammation. Usually, these foods include lots of saturated fats and trans fats, which are fried foods, commercial baked products, red meat, animal fat, processed meat, whole milk, butter and ice cream;

FYI, avoid alfalfa sprouts because it is associated with lupus flares or a lupus-like syndrome.
