Does lupus sometimes cause itchy hives?

Yes.: Hives may be the first symptom of autoimmune diseases like lupus. Hives that are a symptom of lupus are chronic. That means that you suffer from hives everyday or nearly everyday for at least 6 weeks. Still when looking at all patients with chronic hives less than 1% have lupus. The presence of chronic hives is a very good reason to visit a board-certified allergist who can rule lupus in or out. ...Read more

Have a bug bite it is now inflammed red hard and warm to touch. Very itchy and painful should I be worried. I have a history of lupus & cellulitis?

Norma/Concerning: When our skin sustains an injury, immediate response is inflammation (red, hot, tender swelling) for about 48-72 hours. This is the body increasing blood flow to the area to bring healing factors and is normal healing. If it gets worse over time (increase in pain, fevers, chills, more redness), then it may be infected or the lupus may be reacting. If so, then seeing the doc may be your best bet. ...Read more

See derm: Lupus can involve the CNS but you would be expected to have other organ involvement as well. Lups is not associated with itching and thus a dermatology consult may be worthwhile. I presume you have already consulted a rheumatologist. ...Read more
