May 15- Lupus Fact
Some people who have lupus might be photosensitive, meaning they have an unusually strong reaction to sunlight. In fact, about two-thirds of the people with lupus are UV light-sensitive. Many experience an increase in lupus symptoms after being exposed to ultraviolet (UV) rays, either from the sun or from artificial light.
Photosensitive people who have lupus, may develop a skin rash, known as a butterfly rash, which appears over the nose and cheeks after sun exposure. Other rashes might look like hives. Sunlight may also cause a lupus flare, resulting in fever, joint pain, or even organ inflammation.
This is your fifteenth Butterfly of Hope.
We need awareness! We need a cure!
Encourage everyone you know to let it FLY!
