May 19th Lupus Fact
Chilblain lupus is a rare type of chronic cutaneous lupus erythematosus (CLE). An uncommon type of lupus that causes red or purplish skin sores. Specifically, the majority of chilblain lesions develop on the knee, calves, toes, fingers and elbows. These small sores (chilblains) form or worsen after exposure to cold temperatures. The word “chilblain” comes from words that mean “cold” and “sore.” People with Raynaud’s disease are more susceptible to chilblains.
