Discord Lupus and living in Singapore

Post by gumbeaux » Sat, 14 May 2011 7:12 pm

Hi,
I will be coming to Singapore next year and was wondering of any other posters here struggle with sun issues there and if it became worse once they moved there. Sunscreen daily of course but am curious about other remedies.
Thanks

I suffer pretty much with skin problems and lupus is active, it also gives me sever rheumatoid arthritis, seborrheic dermatitis and psoriasis, I never really suffered from it before, it only started since i have been in Singapore the last 6 years. Though I have had auto immune problems low white blood cell count for over 25 years, it's only now that it's really bothering me.

You can manage okay with the medications here, I don't have it so bad, rather count myself lucky, as i only have 3 or 4 itchy bad spots, the Lupus is quite painful when it comes out on the face, burning a lot and effects my eyes, so teardrops help. We have to learn to live with it I guess, so you are not on your own, many people have it here. Alcohol being a no no!
