About Lupus at Jeff Alexander M.D. Dermatology

Skin conditions caused by Lupus usually manifest themselves as large rashes on the back, red patches on the cheeks and face or sores in the mouth or nose. Seeing a dermatologist is critical for alleviating your symptoms and living a more comfortable life.
