I'm into herbal and natural supplements so you might try anything that contains aloe vera. Get the highest concentration you can get. Don't go for the cheap stuff. I use it on my face and legs to keep psoraisis under control. It does a great job.

I have never heard of Lupus being caused by a c-section. Do you mean when she was born her mother had a c-section or when she gave birth your wife had a c-section? What would that have to do with developing Lupus? I am interested because I was born via c-section and all three of my children were born by c-section. I do not have Lupis at this time but I would be interested to know if there is a risk I should be aware of.

She was fine uptil her c-section. I have heard pregnancies can bring out Lupis. But I was told it was something you were born with. Maybe her rashes aren't related to Lupis and that they may have came from the c-section.

I have never heard of Lupus being caused from a c-section. A biopsy will confirm if she has lupus. Lupus does show up in some women while pregnant. People have usually had Lupus for years before actually being diagnosed. The signs and symptoms change often and you can be symptom free for months or years. Lots of the symptoms could be other things and doctors don't look for Lupus. I went to doctors for years before a doctor thought to test me for Lupus. I have the SLE kind.
