    Itchy skin/SLE

    I was diagnosed with sle in Nov 2011 and have just started feeling better the past month or so. BUT I have been experiencing crazy itchy skin, usually on my legs and at night or in the evening, almost feels like little mosquito bites but they are gone in the morning usually. I also have a dry itchy scalp and at times feel like tiny bugs are running laps through my head, I have noticed some small sores on my scalp as well! Any thoughts on this?
