Leicestershire - need to find a Consultant Dermatologist please.

Hello everyone,

I have just joined this site and it looks as though it will be a great help to me.

I certainly have Lupus Pernio and although I have been treated for Psoriasis for many years, I believe it was actually Discoid Lupus.

I have just had my blood tests done and have to see my GP on Monday so that she can refer me to a Dermatologist.

I am in a VERY bad state at the moment and need to see the Consultant very quickly but does anyone know which Dermatologists in Leicestershire, or anywhere in East Midlands area, know about this condition or will they ALL know about it?

Obviously ones I have seen in the past have called it Psoriasis and I can't waste time going to the wrong one!

Sorry for rambling - hope you understand what I am asking.

NB - Update on the Lupus Pernio mentioned above - Would you believe - the GP misread it!!!!!!!!!!!! - It turns out the biopsy I had shows Lichen Sclerosis !!!!!!! - This is a seperate condition to the Discoid Lupus (? Psoriasis?) though could well be connected in the end!

Hi there Dea

Welcome to the Forum :)

I think Tammy may have meant myself and Clare.T. As you can see I go by the screename of Joandublin. Im actually from Ireland and not the UK although there are lots of members here from the UK.

There is a Forum for finding a Lupus Doctor so Im going to move your thread there to see if other members can help. Just look at the main index page and the Forum is listed about two thirds the way down - just after Complimentary Therapies. Actually here is a direct link to the Forum in case you are having difficulty finding it

You might like to look through previous posts on that particular Forum to see if others have posted information about Dermatologists in your area. In the meantime someone might come along here who can help.

Keep checking in and I wish you the very best of luck. You sound in a bad way :sad:

Take care for now
