If you have lupus, you are not alone. Approximately 1.5 million people in the United States suffer from it. Specifically, lupus is an autoimmune disease where your body’s immune system mistakes healthy tissue as foreign. In response, your system creates antibodies against the perceived foreign material and attacks it the way it would attack a virus, bacteria or other germs to rid them from your body.
Lupus is a chronic condition that can affect every part of the body, including all of your organs and joints. Although there is no known cure, there are ways to treat the involved systems in order to provide you comfort.
Two-thirds of people who suffer from lupus also have a skin disease that results in rashes, particularly on the parts of the body exposed to the sun, such as the arms, legs, neck, head and face. One type of skin problem caused by lupus is often referred to as the “butterfly rash.” It spreads across both cheeks and the nose and may look like a sunburn.
The lesions are generally not painful, but if you have them on your face, you are likely to be embarrassed and want to do something to make the red, scaly appearing disc shaped lesions less noticeable. One product, recommended by dermatologists and plastic surgeons is Smart Cover.
Jaylene of Hawaii says that her “confidence has been restored” since using Smart Cover. She can go out without worrying about the red and unattractive lupus blotches on her face attracting all the attention. All Smart Cover products are fragrance free and non-allergenic.
