In brief: Medications

A rheumatologist can treat a lupus patient's symptoms and help prevent future flare-ups, by using a variety of medications to suppress the abnormal activities of the immune system. Lupus is an auto-immune disorder in which one's immune system is abnormal and is reacting with his own organs and tissues.
