I tested positive for Lupus and my doctor tested me again and I was negative. My doctor is a Rheumatologist and he told me that he would test me periodically to see if anything develops. I have since changed doctors and need to know if I should be tested again for this. I have a rash on both sides of my nose occasionally. And, I have skin discoloration on both of my upper arms, could this be Lupus?
ANAs that come and go are ususally of low titer and generally are not significant. I would first see a dermatologist to see if the rash is significant.
