I’m new here, I’m trying this out. I have lupus so not sure if this has any affect on this situation, I’m allergic to everything including weeds but I have always pulled weeds in my back yard and I would get a rash but I get over it pretty quickly, yesterday I pulled weeds and my earlobe was very itchy but nothing was noticeable. I went to bed and it was itchy and a little sore. When I woke up it was very swollen and painful, not sure what to do, I tried allergy pills and that didn’t work. I’m not sure if it was the weeds or a small bug that but me :( any advise?

      I have lupus too, the only thing I could think environmentally would be sun exposure but you would k ow historically if that caused a weird problem for you. I feel like if it stays bad I would personally go to urgent care or the dermatologist if it’s really bothering me. But like you said it could be a bug bite or something

        @SMX yes, I was thinking sun exposure too. I have sun sensitivity with lupus and with Sjogren’s - but it is a problem whenever I’m in the sun too long, not just gardening.
