Hi everyone I was diagnosed with discoid lupus about 8 weeks ago I have a bald patch about 1" in diameter and also noticed last week another swelling on scalp my dermatologist has given me demovate scalp application so I'm hoping this works. I have also noticed my fringe is getting thin and the hair on either side of my forehead. The skin doesn't look inflamed in these places. Is this normal with discoid to get thinning hair ? My ana test was negative.
