Customer Question
I have lupus and...

I have lupus and I feel like I'm burning up my skin is red and raspy, I took a bath and put lotion on but should I go to the ER

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the symptoms? What seems to make the symptoms worse or better?

I have been having a flare up and the past two days it's has been worse I see doctor every week but I take my meds but I just am really stressed and can't stop straching either

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No I see up to four doctors for this every week or two

I am sorry you are having these issues

do you have bad anxiety symptoms? this can make you scratch

have you tried 1% hydrocortisone cream? this often can help decrease itchy skin.

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
