Symptoms of Lupus

Lupus rash affects more than 90% of lupus sufferers. This rash is identified by red skin patches, painful skin lesions and raised nodules. Medical Dermatology Specialists has the expertise you need to properly diagnose your skin problems related to lupus, whether it is lupus rash, cold sores or other skin irritation. We believe that skin problems are more than skin deep. Therefore, we value a comprehensive approach to taking care of systemic diseases such as lupus and treating your skin disease at the source.
What is Lupus?
Lupus is an autoimmune disease that causes the immune system to attack healthy cells and tissue within the body. There are several types of lupus, including systemic lupus, discoid lupus, and subacute cutaneous lupus. Unfortunately, all of these types of lupus involve skin irritation. Dr. Weisman is a dermatologist who is dedicated to helping patients achieve long term relief from lupus skin disorders and going beyond symptom relief efforts of topical creams, oral therapy or steroid creams.
