Skin Lupus

Some individuals have or will develop a type of skin disease, called cutaneous lupus erythematosus. Lupus of the skin can be characterized by rashes or sores (lesions), most of which will appear on sun-exposed areas such as the face, ears, neck, arms, and legs. Your Dermatologist will determine the type of skin lupus you have as there are several variants, and treatment differs for each type.
