I am loosing a lot of my hair due to lupus lesions. What can I do about it?

I am loosing a lot of my hair due to lupus lesions. What can I do about it?

What meds?: Coul;d be lupus, your meds, or something else. I recommend nutritional support using biotin 7500mcg, a b-50 complex, and folic acid. You did not decribe alopecia per se, but if you are sick, you are also catabolic, and hair falls out faster. Since you did not mention meds, i can't help you there. See your rheumatology practitioner to address the meds. Keep in mind, damaged follicles shed! ...Read more

I'm 27yr old male. I noticed since last 6months i have been loosing lot of hair. My hairs are getting thinner, itchy scalp, and break very easily.

Fungus?: Key here is itchy scalp. Makes me think fungal- something called tinea capitis. Hair thinning overall or in distinct patches? Another thought would be underactive thyroid- while more common in females do see in men and thin, breakable hair is one of many symptoms associated with this. A few blood tests should tease it out- then a trial with a medicated shampoo if bloodwork normal. ...Read more
