Senear Usher Syndrome AKA Pemphigus Erythematosis

I have SLE and just got my third circly (discoid shaped) weeping deep skin necrosis looking ugly itchy disgusting lupus rash (I also get hives, vascular lesions and rashes, etc) and I thought it was SCLE subacute cutaneous lupus rashes...I've had one like it on my chest that left permanent discoloration and one on my head that made the hair fall out and this one is on the back of my neck. I'm highly photosensitive. Since being on cellcept I've been better so this one took me by surprise.
I thought all discoid rashes came with some seeping. It is NOT infected, it seeps and comes from all the layers of skin up. Here's some pics on my blog at .
I'm on stronger than usual steroid cream now and its healing nicely. I have to be rid of it before feb 22nd when I'm scheduled for anterior cervical fusion.
Does anyone else get these?
And these circling antibodies at the rash area? I understand a little about it and was also wondering if THIS is the reason why no labs have been able to titer or direct ANA result my blood. They say unable to obtain results due to immune complex interference.
Thanks, HUGS, Julie
