Kay, if it’s just eczema that your childs has, you don’t have to worry about it going over into Lupus. Lupus has a skin rash that may look like eczema, but this doesn’t mean that eczema will go over into Lupus.
If you can let me know (as a new question please) what the active ingredient in Protopic is, I can find out for you whether we have a similar product in SA.
Procutan® is a cortisone cream, but if used correctly it will cause less problems than the eczema in the long run. Good luck.
