"7 years of SLE"

About: Southmead Hospital / Dermatology

(as the patient),

I have suffered from lupus for 7 years. It began when i was age of 21, there were parts of my skin in my face red and inflamed and some little parts also on my scalp, and my fingers were showing red points, but it became worse and worse with the years.

Today, 7 years later, I am completely bald. I've lost all my hair on my head but I still have eyebrows and lashes. I also suffer from leucopaenia and anaemia. I was trying many ways of therapy also TCM and Holopathy which is a special therapy that I think does not even exist in the UK only Switzerland Germany and Austria. That was helping a lot but only during the time when I was in treatment, afterwards all the symptoms come back again!

I was taking cortisone and immunosuppressive but that didnt seem to help - my skin became even worse!
