One thought on “Lupus Rash Treatments Natural

  1. Anonymous

    To sufferers of immune disorders: How can I treat myself for possible lupus/rheumatoid arthritis? (detailed)?
    Allergic to dust/grass as a child, but allergy-free from age 13 until recently (I’m now in my late 20’s).

    Hep C

    Early 20’s: diagnosed with Hep C (untraced source). I was suddenly cured after 1 mo. My doctor said my own body got rid of it, which is rare for hep C patients.

    Several months later I noticed when I’d lay on my left side, there’s a tingly, tender sensation. There’s no pain and I got used to it so I’m just living with it.

    Arthritis?

    8 mos ago: sudden onset of stiffness/jammed feeling on both wrists (overnight). Always had weak/inflamed knees since 4 yrs back, would disappear with regular exercise.

    Got Sick

    Late last year I had flue more than a month. I was diagnosed with bronchitis, was on antibiotics and was cured right away.

    I started lightly working out again and just a month later I WAS SICK AGAIN! I was down for only 3 days though compared to the last time. Coughed 1 month. I was on stronger antibiotics and cured. I also saw an allergy doctor and was diagnosed with sinusitis and now on corticosteroids.

    Results

    My ANA blood test turned out POSITIVE. My doctor ordered a 2nd test for next month. She said it’s an indication of possible lupus or rheumatoid arthritis.

    Extra info:

    Never been overweight my whole life.
    Ethnicity: Asian.
    My other “illnesses” recently diagnosed: costochondritis.
    Always had: severe dandruff, on and off but worse now; dandruff-related facial rash, only shows up on the same spots – left cheek near nose, between eyebrows.
    Falling hair is worse now.

    I’m a copywriter for more than 3 yrs. I admit my posture is VERY bad, often sitting or lying on my stomach on the bed (probably caused the costochondritis). Was diagnosed 4 yrs ago with borderline anemia (mother is anemic). Prescribed iron supplements but I stopped cos of side effects which is diarrhea.

    THIS IS MY DILEMMA: I was thinking of eating healthier and exercising again. But wouldn’t raising the immune system make things even worse? I just hate the idea of being on immune-suppressing drugs, considering my now sensitive liver. I would be more open to “natural” treatments. How do I go about this?
