Can flare-up of rashes mainly on the limbs indicate lupus despite normal blood test reports?
The symptoms need to be controlled
Thanks for asking on Healthcaremagic.
Although butterfly rash is a typical pattern that indicates lupus, it is not necessary that butterfly rash has to be there. It is good to know that no flare up of rashes have occurred as yet. While there's no cure for lupus, current treatments focus on improving quality of life through controlling symptoms and minimising flare-ups. This begins with lifestyle modifications, including sun protection and diet. Further disease management includes medication such as anti-inflammatories and steroids. In this case since she has itchiness, she needs to take some antiallergic medication like cetirizine. Dome steroids are also possibly needed. Things do add up.
Let me know if you need to know anything further.
