Lupus Hair Loss

Frustrated Mother Suffering From Post Natal Depression

Hair loss is one of the many symptoms of lupus.

Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body such as skin, joints, and organs. The body doesn’t have the ability to fight off viruses, bacteria, and germs. Because it can affect so many different organs, a wide range of symptoms can occur such as fatigue, fever, anemia, swelling, and hair loss – to name a few.

Lupus hair loss can be caused by the disease itself, meaning the immune system destroys hair follicles, or be medicines or immune system suppressants. In these cases, the hair will typically grow back once the medication is stopped.

It falls out in strands or even in clumps, most noticeable when brushing hair. For those suffering from Lupus and experiencing hair loss, we have some ideas about how you can deal with it. Lupus can also cause skin rashes, causing the hair to fall out as well. The rashes located near the face and ears can scar the hair follicles to the point where they can no longer produce hair.

Fight Lupus with Confidence

This disease is hard enough for you; don’t let the lack of your hair make it worse. You may start to feel uncomfortable with your balding spots. You’re noticing more hair in your brush and in the drain when you shower. The good news is that you’re not alone. The Lupus Foundation of America estimates that 1.5 million Americans, and at least 5 million people worldwide, have a form of Lupus. 90% of these individuals diagnose with Lupus are women, and it develops between the ages of 15-44.
