In brief: No

The disease can vary greatly.
Some have skin involvement only while others never develop skin involvement. Others have arthritis only. Followup with your doctor is important to monitor your ideas and treatment. Lupus can be self limited and burn it itself out.

In brief: No it varies

There is great variation among lupus patients.
Though skin and joint disease are common manifestations, they do not occur in all patients. The disease can affect internal organs, the blood, or cause psychological problems. It is best to get an accurate diagnosis and treatment by a rheumatologist if you have lupus.
