Hi, thank you for posting. The best medicine to treat lupus is Hydroxichloroquine sulphate. It is true that this medicine has a lot of side effects, but it is more effective. But you should contact your rheumatologist, to discuss about these medicines, because it's your doctor that decides for the needed treatment. Regards. Dr. Behar.

Yes. Steroids can be given locally to reduce the inflammation. The effect is seen after a week and usually provides relief for 8-10 weeks.
