    My rheumatologist prescribed me Plaquenil, he’s assured me it’s safe during pregnancy and I plan to contact my OB tomorrow to get her thoughts. I’m just so anxious because I want the pain to go away and enjoy my pregnancy as much as one can but I also don’t want to do anything at all to harm my unborn baby. Hydroxychloroquine is usually considered a pregnancy Category C medication. This means that it may not be safe for use during pregnancy, although the full risks are not known.

    Lynnwood is right that you might need to see a rheumatologist to get plaquenil, but for me, it's been a wonder drug-- no real side-effects and great results in clearing up my skin and reducing my leg pain! I did not know that cutaneous can turn into discoid lesions. My only symptoms are that my hands turn dark red from the flurouscent lights at work and the sun, I lose hair, and the 4-6 wk flare up on my face which left a quarter shape on my chin, cheeks and corner of cheeks. I haven't gotten any outbreaks on my body except a skin rash (very small). My knuckles, fingers, and once my complete hand turned dark red and then purple. My UCTD includes skin lesions that, on biopsy, look like lupus lesions. Subacute Cutaneous Lupus Erythematosus SCLE.
