How to Tell if Someone Has Lupus

Hair Loss

Thinning hair is one of the symptoms lupus experience. When inflammation of the scalp and skin occur, hair loss will be seen. Some lupus patients lose their hair by clump. It is likely that hair will thin out slowly. Some patients have experienced thinning of the eyelashes, eyebrows, beard and other body hairs. Lupus can make hair to break easily, look ragged and feel brittle. Treatment of lupus will help patients renew their hair growth. However, lesions on the scalp will result in permanent hair loss.
