I was recently diagnosed with subacute cutaneous lupus effecting my hair follicles (without lesions or scaling). The back of my head above my neck was completely bald and several bald patches throughout. The back of my head is being treated with steroid injections which are working, and the spots with a steroid cream. I feel like my hair is getting thinner and new bald spots appear as soon as the others go away. I was told by my doctors this would or could happen. Has anyone else had this? If so, how are you treating it? I am on a gluten free vegan diet.
