Hello, My daughter was diagnosed with lupus two years ago when she broke out in a malar rash on her face. Other than her skin, she has no organ damage. She was recently found to have a C2 deficiency which explains a lot. She has recurrent infections, but not serious ones, and is sick very often. Her rheumatologist decided not to start her on Plaquenil (hydroxychloroquine). My question is - is there anything I can do to keep her lupus or other autoimmune disease from progressing? Are there any advances being made in complement deficiencies? I know I am so lucky, she is doing well, but she is so little I just want to make sure I am doing everything I can to keep her healthy.
