Does anyone else lupus cause itchiness?

      Yeah I get itchy hives that show up in random spots on my body & they can stay for a couple minutes or a couple days. I just put cortisone lotion & it helps the itchiness

      I occasionally get itchy hives on my hands during flare ups, but I think I've always been somewhat hyper aware to when my body feels just generally itchy so can't say for sure if there's a connection there since I don't usually have visible rashes

        @Saph My daughter was just recently diagnosed with lupus in February. It was the large itchy hives that started in September that led to her February diagnosis. I was diagnosed in 2012. I never had hives, but my daughter had them daily right now.

      Yes. I also have neuropathic itchiness, so sometimes it's lupus, and sometimes it's neuropathy.

        @SJP I have small fiber neuropathy and was diagnosed with lupus years ago but now they’re questioning the diagnosis. I’m currently getting hives that itch and then get better and they come back and forth did you get a skin biopsy ever? I’m likely getting one in the next month but I’m wondering if these rashes that I’m getting could be from my lupus not currently being treated because of the question in my diagnosis?

          @Hockey_Mom It is possible it is lupus and not SFN, but lupus can cause SFN. Punch biopsy is the best way to diagnose SFN, so it's good you're getting one. Lupus also causes lesions, and discoid rash.

      Yes especially when I'm in the sun to long. Or getting out the shower and not drying off immediately.
