I had difficulty finding information on the internet on tumid lupus. From what I learned, this is a rare form of lupus and is a subtype of discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE) whose clinical characteristics rarely have been described in the literature.

Your symptoms of joint pain and a cough may or may not be related to lupus. It could be a virus. Consult your physician.
