Although there is currently no cure for lupus, the autoimmune condition is reversible when it’s been induced by drugs, according to Healthline.
The health body adds that the onset of lupus symptoms “may not start until you’ve been taking the medicine continuously for months or years”.
Other cases of lupus generally occur when the body comes under attack by the immune system, causing inflammation in the joints, fatigue and rashes.
The lupus rash is distinctive because it is shaped like a butterfly that stretches across the upper cheeks and nose.
Occasionally, it causes lesions that can worsen with exposure to the sun, according to the Mayo Clinic.
