Lupus is often accompanied by a skin rash, the appearance of which can be prevented by using sunscreen products, avoiding exposure to sunlight, as well as drugs. The drugs have different effects on each person, some of them cause long-term side effects.
There are no drugs that can cure lupus (systemic lupus erythematosus, SLE). However, they help control most of the symptoms of lupus and also prevent damage to internal organs.
To remove symptoms, as a rule, enough non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and anti-malarial drugs, since inflammation causes most of them.
The acute form of lupus is treated with drugs that suppress the immune system – corticosteroids and immunosuppressants. Their appointment and reception take place under the strict supervision of a doctor, as these drugs cause serious side effects.
