Common Conditions Related to Lupus

Hair loss

Needless to say, lupus causes hair loss. Why? Lupus causes your scalp hair along the hairline to become fragile and break off easily. A discoid lesion scars the hair follicles causing permanent hair loss. The hair on your scalp will then thin out. Other areas where you may lose hair include the eyebrows, body hair, beard, and eyelashes.
