    Plaquenil for subacute cutaneous lupus


    According to my rheumatologist, plaquenil is good at clearing up skin involvement. I have ring shaped and oval shaped lesions that have healed but you can still see them if i remove my makeup. I am dying to talk to someone who has Cutaneous lupus. I did not know that cutaneous can turn into discoid lesions. My only symptoms are that my hands turn dark red from the flurouscent lights at work and the sun, I lose hair, and the 4-6 wk flare up on my face which left a quarter shape on my chin, cheeks and corner of cheeks. I haven't gotten any outbreaks on my body except a skin rash (very small). My knuckles, fingers, and once my complete hand turned dark red and then purple. Hey Angelina, UCTD stands for "undifferentiated connective tissue disease," which means I have some sort of autoimmune connective tissue disease (like, lupus, RA, polymyositis, scleroderma are all named, differentiated connective tissue diseases) but it doesn't fit the definition of any of the named diseases. i asked my doctor if he ever heard of this and he said yes. A few months into taking plaquenil, I'm barely getting any more skin lesions. I was diagnosed with Subacute cutaneous and have read that I can get discoid lesions from cutaneous. I have ring shaped and oval shaped lesions that have healed but you can still see them if i remove my makeup. I am dying to talk to someone who has Cutaneous lupus.
