    Hi.....
    Just wanted to update about my bad reaction to plaquenil and my dermatologist appointment today .......

    Dr. took one look at me and said "We need to do two Punch biopsies" so I went for it. She said she is looking for connective tissue disease or vasculitis or drug reaction.

    Has anyone ever had this done ??
    It really didnt hurt......each site has a couple stitches.
    Now the waiting game til results come back in about 14 days.

    Hello. While I didn't have the same testing you did I did connective tissue disease testing with a specialist. Fortunatelly, I came up negative for EDS (Ehlers Danlos Syndrome - several different types), just that I was hypermobile. There is lots of info on this if you do a internet search.

    Best wishes.
