Diagnosed with Tumid lupus erythematosus (TLE)? Share your experience with us.

If you've been diagnosed with TLE, we want to hear from you!

People in the past have told us that their TLE was rarely spoken about, and that finding support has been helpful. If you have the time and energy to spare, please share your experiences with TLE. I have no doubt that many people will find comfort in hearing about your journey.

  1. I have it! Diagnosis by biopsy. My Rheumatologist had my dermatology slides tested by her lab at Umassmemorial as she doubted I had it. Test positive with their lab also. I’ve had 2 flare ups of the rash. 

    1. I'm happy to hear that your rheumatologist sent your slides to get tested, even if they doubted that you had TLE. That must be a big relief. Has anything helped with the rash so far? I'm still learning a lot about TLE, and would love to know anything that's helped so far. Warmly, - Cody (Team Member)
