I had a biopsy of a reoccuring winter-time rash on my neck, and the results suggested possible cutaneous lupus. Can untreated sleep apnea raise risk?

In brief: No evidence

The is no evidence available that links cutaneous lupus with untreated sleep apnea.
Sleep apnea tends to have more cardiovascular risks such as a heart attack, stroke or even contributing to blood clots. If there is a suspicion of sleep apnea, talk to your doctor about getting tested and treated.
