Hi I'm Sandee. I have had autoimmune issues for many years (Hashimoto's, vitiligo, psoriatic arthritis, fibromyalgia, Reynauds). I was just diagnosed with lupus 2 months ago after developing what looked like giant hives on my face and neck, with swollen peeling skin and lips that persisted for not than 7 weeks. Very deep, intense itching only under my chin. I got 5 cold soles in six months. My general doctor, my rheumatologist and my endocrinologist all said it looked like an allergic reaction. My rheumatologist did however refer me to a dermatologist at my request. He did a punch biopsy and some bloodwork and diagnosed me with lupus. So, I am allergic to the sun. Sheer Zinc from Neutrogena on my face and neck everyday whether I am indoors or out. Topical steroids directly to swelling areas. I now have developed a low grade fever and only my lips have swelled and have started to peel. Has anyone else had just the lips swell and start to peel?
