One thought on “What are treatment options for lupus skin disease?

    There are a few blood tests one can do that can reflect how active the immunological disease is inside our bodies in diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and scleroderma. This information can be very helpful at times both in the diagnosis of the specific problem and in guiding treatment of the problems over time. These tests are routinely ordered by doctors who are treating such patients. Dermatomyositis causes autoimmune inflammation and damage in the muscles, skin, and occasionally other vital organs, which include the lungs. Similar forms of treatment are used for the skin problems seen in patients with dermatomyositis and lupus. Regarding treatment of lupus skin disease, the topical measures that were discussed above, which include the application of sunscreens and corticosteroid-containing creams and ointments directly to the skin, can be helpful in suppressing the skin inflammation caused by lupus.
