Question: my dad was diagnosed with lupus on his nose. should i be worried? ? Is lupus on the nose common? I have read stuff about Discoid lupus erythematosus, which is skin lupus, but on the nose? is it life threatning? what type of test should he ask for? Thanks

Answer: I would be concerned but not overly terrified. You should learn as much as you can and talk to the doctor with any concerns for the family. You can check out this website from the mayoclinic it has not only information about the disease but also things to do at home to help out.… This will help to be supportive. Lupus is so unpredictable I do not want to tell you that it is not life threatening and then in a month or two he passes. It really depends on how soon it was noticed, and what treatments are done to help it. Stay strong & supportive. I wish your family the best.
