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!

Many thanks Tammy - I will go and see if I can track those two people down in the members list.

I hope there are not too many with those names.

I have just gone through the members lists for all the Clares and Joan's but can't find any who are from this area?

Thank you Joan.

Yes - I am in a very bad way but I am sure there are MANY others far worse than me.

I just need to learn more, get to see the right person and get it 'under control'.

I am quite frightened at the moment as I know I have been given treatment for the wrong things - I have various creams, lotions and potions - some of which help very slightly but I don't know which one to put where for the best and the pain is so bad I could not bear to make it worse.

Thank you for moving my post to the correct place.

Best wishes to you and all the members of this site

Thank you Maria,

I was hoping to find someone in Leicester/Nottingham/Derby areas but he is certainly not too far away so I will look into it.

Many thanks for the info.

Take care yourself too,

Best wishes,
