I'm 16 and I was diagnosed with lupus a year ago.

Anyway. I have these red/pink blotches on my legs and feet mostly, but it also appears on my arms and stomach at times. During my first visit to my Rhumitologist, he sounded very confident that these splotches would go away, but now he seems to ignore them. He did say something about capillaries, and told me the only way I could solve my problem would be to go on blood pressure medication. Since I have a good blood pressure, lowering it would be bad for my health.

Does anyone have an idea what this is called? I'd like to know because I'd like to see if there is anything else I can do about this. Being 16, and a girl, it's hard to have people come up to me and ask whats wrong with my skin.
