Dermatologist: Discoid lupus is usually treated by a dermatologist who may prescribe a corticosteroid ointment or inject the corticosteroid directly into the affected skin. In cases that do not respond, oral antimalarial medications like hydroxychloroquine are first line, but other antiautoimmune oral medications are also used. I recommend consulting a dermatologist at a university hospital for extensive cases.
