Could this be Lupus?
i have had a rash on my face and body for about 6 weeks now, i recently went to my family doctor and she said that i had polymorphus light eruption. she said they could nothing for it, so i pressured her into getting me into the dermotologist, he looked at me and asked if i had ever heard of lupus, i said yes and he said nothing more about it. he said that he did not want to tell me what was wrong until i got the blood work done. i am so concerned. i know nothing about lupus. please help me, does this sound like lupus?
Without a clinical evaluation it is impossible for me to tell if you have lupus. I would suggest following up with your dermatologist for this.
