Hair loss & scalp sores/scabs
By July 31, 2012 at 12:20 am 6,748 16
The last 2-3 months my scalp is red; my hair is REALLY falling out; and I have all kinds of sores on my head as if I hit my head really bad and now its scabbed over (but I haven't hit my head). The end of August the dermatologist is going to biopsy one of the sores). I have Systemic Scleroderma as well as 7 other auto-immune diseases. I just had gastric bypass for severe and damaging reflux. So either this hair loss is from Lupus or the nutrition loss due to the gastric bypass. My hubby took me to a wig store and we found a good one but I'm so afraid people will know it's a wig. But the hair loss is getting hard to cover as the top is so thin. I don't have a definitive diagnosis that it's Lupus bug I'm pretty sure it will be. Any feedback would be so appreciated…advice/your story.etc. Thanks!
