Question:

if i have lupus in my sking can it get worst? ALSO I HAVENT HAD A CHECKUP FOR MY LUPUS IN ABOUT 5 YEARS AND MY BOES ARE STARTING TO HURT AND I CANT WORK WHAT CAN I DO?

Answer:

It is important for people having lupus to undergo regular follow up even if there are no lupus-related symptoms, since some patients may experience flare of their lupus symptoms including skin disease months to years after undergoing remission. When the disease is quiet, the follow up visits to the rheumatologist may be less frequent, but they are important. If you are having breast pain, you definitely need to talk to your Doctor.
