Localized discoid lupus in the scalp

I have suffered from discoid lupus for 20 years now, over the past year i have noticed alot of hair loss in one place on my head.  I am very self conciouos of this and was wondering if hair transplant is an option.  My dermatologist here told me I was a few years ago.  But have read a few things that scare me.  What other options are there for minimal hairloss with discoid lupus.  I am on plaxinil.  My discoid lupus is localized they told me.  I have one lession  on my chest and my ears are not quite right, but that's about it other than the scalp. I consider myself very lucky, but don't like the balding areas!  Please let me know if there are any new treatments for discoid lupus and hair loss!  It would be very much appreciated!  Thank you in advance!  Jackie
