Lupus can range from a condition which just affects the skin to a life-threatening illness known as systemic cutaneous erythematosus (SLE) that attacks the joints, internal organs as well as the skin. The latter affects 15,000 people across England and Wales causing fatigue, joint pain, swelling and rashes. Almost 90% of patients who are diagnosed with the illness are women. Lupus mistakenly attacks body tissues and healthy cells.
