Lupus and gel polish

#1
Hi everyone,
I’m wondering if anyone has experience of Lupus and gel polish or indeed any polish? I’ve been reading (on NHS site) that pretty much all polishes/acetone etc should be avoided, as should the uv lamps as they can cause a flare up of symptoms? I’d be very grateful if anyone has any personal experience of this they could share.
Many thanks x

I’m sorry no one has replied. My daughter is being tested for it and I’ve done gels on her nails a lot recently. I have read many articles stating that UV light can cause a Lupus flare up (along with other things such as sunlight and fluorescent light). People have different triggers. I used a new lamp today and in the instructions it states that people with UV issues shouldn’t be using these lamps.
I made a mistake, it was the Lupus website itself not the NHS site the article was on https://www.lupusuk.org.uk/nail-care/
Lots to think about x
