Red Spots Appear On The Right Hand Of People With Lupus?
Good night, I am a lupus patient for 1 year 4 months ago I sent a skit to check the urine results and it turned out that the protein was positive 3 and there was no swelling or anything like a red spot like a mosquito bite but a lot and today there appeared a red spot on the hand right like a crowd, is that an influence huh?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Lupus is one of the diseases that fall into the category of autoimmune diseases, which means that in this disease, the immune system that is supposed to attack the disease, instead it attacks the body's own tissues. So because the body itself is attacked, the symptoms can vary depending on which part is attacked, can be joints, heart, kidney, brain, spinal cord, skin, and many more.
The cause of this condition is still unknown until now, but it is suspected that this condition is created from a combination of genetic, hormonal and environmental abnormalities all of which still require further research.
Regarding your question, we previously mentioned that there are various parts that can be attacked by the immune system in lupus, one of which is the skin. And that makes the skin appear red blotches or rashes. So what you experience is a condition that is often found by people with lupus, especially in areas that are often exposed to sunlight such as the face and arms. On the face, these spots even have a special term, which is a butterfly rash due to its shape resembling a butterfly that rests on the nose.
This condition does not immediately indicate that your condition is improving or worsening, because this is only one of the symptoms, although maybe during the past year you have not experienced it. The link with positive protein 3 is that both are the body's reaction to people with lupus, but do not directly have a causal relationship between one another. In responding to this, you don't need to worry, just tell your doctor when you are in control and if your control is already disturbed before the time, immediately control even if it is not time yet. In the meantime, avoid exposure to sunlight, take medication as recommended, and check yourself. So, hopefully answering your question.
