    my mom is taking hydroxychlor for the lupus that she has on her joints, and when she takes it she gets a rash on her neck and her face gets really dry, irritated, so we were wondering if there is anything that she can put on her face or neck to make it better...

    Hi Monica,

     

    Please know that I'm not a medical professional and have no medical training.  Your mom should certainly discuss this side-effect with her rheumatologist.

     

    I will tell you that my grandmother, who has extremely sensitive skin, uses Lubriderm lotion on her skin.  It's supposed to be one of the mildest lotions available.  However, this may NOT be what your mom needs.

     

    Ask the doctor please.

      Well my mom talked to her specialist and she said that its all part of the secondary effects of the medicine she is taking. And she has tried acouple of lotions but most of them give her a rash and her face gets more irritated. so now she is using a baby lotion that contains water and so far that lotion has given her the best results, but i will tell her about the lotion you've recomended.

      What type of lubridem does your grandmother utilize?

      So good that she is getting positive results with the baby lotion.  That's a good idea.  I think that the version she used was for Sensitive Skin.  But honestly, I didn't look that closely.  Hope the baby lotion continues to help.
