Imagine living a life where sunlight becomes a bother; rashes cover your body, fatigue becomes the order of the day and joint problems always on the core. These are some of the problematic situations that lupus patients go through. Interestingly, very few people know that lupus exists. They only get to learn about the disease when they or someone they know is diagnosed with lupus. World Lupus Day was created to help the public understand this autoimmune disease better.
The global Lupus awareness day is observed on 10th May every year. The entire month of May is also recognized as the World Lupus awareness month.
