So I have this rash on the back of my neck/head. The derm wanted to biopsy it. It came back as subtle eczema. She said this doesn't rule out lupus, and they need to biopsy the face rash still, when it comes back.
Is it common to have lupus and eczema at the same time?
I feel so defeated. I was hoping this biopsy would come back as lupus and I could start treatment. If it turns out the rash on my face is eczema, I don't know what I'm going to do. That would leave me wondering, what's wrong with the rest of my body? What are all these flares that lead to strange bodily symptoms, fevers, hair falling out, aching all over. It just wouldn't make sense. I feel like I'm going crazy. And I don't want to biopsy my face because of the potential for scarring. Ugh. But I guess it just needs to be done.
I just want the face rash to hurry up and come, so I can know once and for all. I know that will lead to another flare, but I guess it's worth it in order to know.
