I am a 46 y.o. Italian decent women who also was diagnosed last year (2007) with lupus. I have the joint aches and stiffness but I suffer immensely with the rash mainly on my face. The very top of my chest (near my neck) now gets it and my arms too. I was put on plaquenil and given two different topicals to use: Triamcinolone acetonide cream 0.1% and desonide ointment 0.5% both require rx's. I also take rounds of Prednisone when I can't take the rash with itching and pain anymore. The rx's help so maybe you can ask your md for them.

Since there is no cure for this auto immune disorder, we just have to do our best and hang in there. Good Luck to you.

Have you ever heard of tumid lupus? It is confined to the skin. It itches terribly and can make the areas ache. I've had it for about 6 and 1/2 years and it is finally under control. I take plaquenill and use triaminicolone topical cream. The breakouts can happen anywhere on your body but I mostly have them on my arms, chest and some on my legs. Maybe this will help you.
