“Coping and Living with Skin Lupus”

Lupus doesn’t limit itself to INTERNAL organs. The largest organ in the body is the skin and when lupus affects this organ, it is often called discoid lupus, causing another source of problems (red scaly patches, hair loss). Lupus can just have EFFECTS (sun sensitivity, mild itchiness) on the skin, in which case, it is not discoid.

This is a very interesting presentation, differentiating Systemic Lupus from Discoid Lupus.
