Hi all,
Was wondering if any of you have had this happen with you? I waited till dark but my neighbors had a weinnie roast tonight. After helping one of my other neighbors pack most of the day, I went out to sit and relax a little and enjoy the nice night. When I came inside I have a huge red area on my upper right thigh with welt like swelling going on. I know most may say I got ate by bugs but there weren't any out there tonight. It is itching so bad and hurts when I do scratch it's just like the leisions I get with my lupus bumps but not the same rash now. I was just wondering if it is related to the lupus or just me. I really wore myself out today and should of went home hours ago to rest. I am most likely just being silly. I also have the welts on my left leg and the itching but not the red rash yet(the lower part of my leg). Thanks for any advice you may give me and your thoughts on what it might be.

Ouchee :( I hope you can soothe it with cold compresses, pressure and such. I don't know about you but I swear I could be in the antarctic muffled from head to toe in 20 tightly woven layers and some blood thirsty bug would find a ***** to worm through and bite me. I hope it eases soon
Hugs

it seems worse today the redness and swelling. I don't think it is bug bites. It is almost like a flare but so odd to be like this. well we will see what the rest of the week brings and if i still have trouble by the middle of the week will call doc and see what she thinks.
Thanks clare for you note.

Tammy,

Sorry to hear about the itchy, sore wealt!

Perhaps you should go to the doctor sooner rather than later - even if its just ointment they give you to help it - dont want whatever it is to get infected!

Take care!

Hugs!
