One of the most misdiagnosed diseases is Lupus. For 3 years this client and I have been fighting to clear up this Fungi that kept coming back in different area of her scalp after it had cleared up. It was mistaken for Alopecia Areta and a common Bacteria. So the Dermatologist I sent her to was just giving her topical ointments that worked for a moment. Until just recently I told her to go to her regular medical doctor because her joints started to hurt and swell (acting like arthritis) and the Fungi had spread to the inside of her ear. Needless to say, they preformed a blood test and the diagnosis was Lupus.
Lupus is an autoimmune disease, one that takes on several forms and can affect any part of the body, but is most commonly attacks the skin, joints, the heart, lungs, blood, kidneys and brain. It also comes in various types, affecting the body and patient in various ways.
Many suffers may go through years of these symptoms: red rashes, hair loss, weight changes, poor appetite, extreme fatigue, painful or swollen joints, mouth or nose sores, dry eyes, chest pains and/or fevers without ever noticing a pattern to the flares or a doctor ever being able to diagnose Lupus. These symptoms may come and go all at once and can be mild or severe.
In this case the Lupus is not scarring and her hair will return. Treatments and oral medications have been started.
