Patient Actions

Be aware of any raised, circular skin sores appearing on the skin, as this is a characteristic sign of a Discoid Lupus sore. The appearance of a sore may be scaly and tends to be lighter in color toward the center of the sore. An affected area is commonly 5mm to 10mm in diameter. Always protect skin from sun exposure through the use of sunscreens.
