Lupus is an autoimmune disease. Autoimmune diseases occur when the body's immune system attacks your own bodies organs, tissues, etc. With Lupus, your immune system attacks various parts of the body and can cause inflammation in your kidneys, joints, skin, hair, heart, lungs, and more.
Lupus Erythematosus Systemic (SLE) is the most common type of Lupus. Other types of Lupus include:
Lupus tends to develop between the age of 15 to 45 years old.
Most often, the cause of Lupus is unknown making it an idiopathic disease.
However, those with a familial history of Lupus are more likely to develop it and occasionally Lupus can be triggered by environmental factors.
Some potential triggers of Lupus include sunlight, infections, and medications (such as blood pressure medications and antibiotics).
Because Lupus tends to have inflammation of the skin and most commonly attacks the skin on the face and scalp, it does often impact hair growth and hair loss.
Prior to treatment, those with Lupus will often find that their hairline, eyebrows, and eyelashes will thin.
Most often, hair loss from Lupus is not permanent and hair will re-grow once your Lupus is treated. However, there are rare cases of permanent hair loss when lesions appear on the scalp and cause scarring.
Yes, provided you do not have scar tissue, there are treatments available to help grow your hair back. Some of these treatments may need to be discussed with your doctor.
Once your Lupus has been treated by a doctor, you should avoid autoimmune response triggers, such as sunlight, to avoid inflammation which could target the face and scalp.
While the first step is always to treat the condition, after that you can do a number of things to help encourage and nurture your hair growth. Here are a few examples of things you could incorporate into your hair care routine:
