Remember, you don't need to do anything yet, carry on using the forums as normal, and it will be obvious when the switch has gone through and you need to reset.

    I know we had a poster who suffered really badly with DLE on her scalp - I haven't seen her active in the boards for a while though, but I'll :bump: this up nevertheless.

    I have DLE, but don't suffer too much on my scalp. Did you mention this to your dermy?

        Hi Sue,

        I've got discoid lupus...i have tightening of the skin but not the scalp, the problems i have with my scalp is blister spots which turn into scabs, dandruff at times besides hair loss but not what you've mentioned.

              Hi sue sorry for the late reply just came across your post I too have discoid lupus which mainly effects my scalp it used to get tight and sore,even hurt when the wind blew my hair, have been left with a few blad spots as well.
              But have been on plaquenil for 15 months or so now and it's worked well for me also use dermavate steroid lotion.... My last appointment with my derm was told it was inactive which was good to hear can cope with the soreness but the hair loss not so much.
              Hope you feel better soon
