“In approximately 10% of Discoid Lupus cases, it evolves & develops into systemic lupus. However, this can’t be predicted or prevented from happening.”
I recently found out about this form of lupus when an individual I met through WordPress shed a light on it. I just thought that the skin rashes and lesions were just a part of having SLE lupus. Oh how quickly did I learn. The more you know the more you grow. May is Lupus Awareness month! Get to KNOW LUPUS and all of its forms.
