Dealing With Scle

I have just been diagnosed with subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus after several months of being treated for drug reactions, allergies, etc. Mostly I have been trying different ways to get rid of, or at least contain, my rashes.( Arms, v of neck, mostly). I have just started on plaquenil, and am currently on prednisone.
I am just now trying to figure out what I can do proactively to deal with this. Suncreens, avoid sun, etc...how strict should I be. Any one who has any suggestions?

I was just diagnosed with SCLE also. I have been searching for a group with little luck. All the write ups say the rash doesn't itch - mine does. Have you found a good discussion forum?
