Lupus is a complex and poorly understood condition that affects many parts of the body. The symptoms can range from mild to life threatening.

The term “lupus” is most often used to describe a more severe form of the condition called systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).

There are several other types of lupus that just affect the skin, including:

  • Discoid lupus erythematosus
  • Subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus

Some medications can also cause lupus-like side effects, known as drug-induced lupus.

SLE can cause a wide range of symptoms, depending on the areas of the body affected.

Many people have long periods with few or no symptoms before experiencing a sudden flare-up, where their symptoms are particularly severe.

SLE is an autoimmune condition, which means it’s caused by problems with the immune system.
