Hi All, I have been treated with plaquenil for 6 months now and been on imuran and 5mg prednislone for just over two months. My hair has been falling out for about 4 months but the last couple of months it has happened very quickly. I have 3 massive bald patches and the rest of my hair is very thin - I have only bout 20% of the hair I had before and I can't hide it anymore which makes me really self conscious and upset everytime I look in the mirror when I get ready to go out in public.
Anyway, I really hoped the hair loss would have stopped by now but when I run my fingers through my hair (that I have left) I still have a heap of strands coming out. I was wondering what other peoples experience is with hair loss - do you think it is the lupus or the meds that are making my hair fall out still??
