May 12- Lupus Fact
Lupus can cause a variety of skin rashes, including the classic butterfly rash on the face.
Lupus lesions often appear as raised, scaly, or thickened patches on the skin and can be triggered or worsened by sun exposure. They commonly occur on the face, scalp, neck, and other sun-exposed areas, although they can appear anywhere on the body. In addition to lesions, lupus can cause a range of rashes, such as the classic butterfly-shaped rash across the cheeks and bridge of the nose, which is characteristic of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Other rashes associated with lupus may resemble discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE), which typically presents as red, coin-shaped lesions that may cause scarring.
This is your twelfth Butterfly of Hope.
We need awareness! We need a cure!
