ddsmom Posted March 22, 2014 Report Share Posted March 22, 2014 Hi all, I'm a new member and a bit desperate for help. My BC is almost 5 years old. End of last summer she developed eye and nose irritation - very itchy and redness. Skin around the eyes and nose became scaly and very dry. I thought it was allergies as she spent alot of time outside. The vet said she thinks it's lupus(canine discoid lupus erythematosus). She gave her a slew of meds but it didn't help. I gave her some homeopathic supplements with flaxseed oil. It helped a little. I got her some doggles and canine sunscreen as the vet said she's sensitive to UV rays and cannot go out in the sun! She's better but still has some issues. Summer is here and I'm worried the lupus will flair up again. She was never tested for lupus - could this be something else?? Any suggestions would be so greatly appreciated. I've been reading up on lupus but I haven't found much that seems to help with alleviating the symptoms. I would hate to keep her locked up inside all summer. Thank you! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
