Hello Doris,

Any photos like that should be kept and shown to your docs. It looks rather like the blister/hive type rash that I get from the sun except that mine is a lot "angrier" and all over :lol:

It isn't easy to see from photos of course so it's best that the doc see the actual rash even though that's not always possible and sitting out in the sun on purpose might not be really worth it (I certainly can't, it makes me feel too bad after).

Hi Doris

Your arms seem very familiar, well the rash on the arms!!:rolleyes:

My chest was livid red with big blistery type rashes, shiney.

If you can clinch it with a Dermatologist doing a biopsy.

Sorry not sure if your diagnosed yet or not.

Hi NIck00,

Hi Doris

Just as a note .... I dont have discoid lupus.

The rash I had was due to photosensitivity.

Take care

Nicky

Hi Nicky00,
Oh i totally agree with you, the rash is not (i think) discoid but photosensitivity. And i have only been this way in the sun for about 4-5 years. Oh well just something else we have to put up with.
Hugs
Sand.....
