My husband's Lupus has been in remission for some time, but recently he has been having a rash (similar to hives) and itching. Could this be a flare up of the Lupus and what can he do to stop the itching. We have tried everything. His doctor's don't know.

Could be a Lupus flare or maybe sensitive skin. I know my skin is very sensitive to everything including the sun. Hydrocortisone cream can help with the itch. Scratching a rash can make it worse so discourage him from scratching if possible.
