Hair Loss, Diabetes and Thyroid disease

I have recently found that I my hair line is receding. I have a skin rash all thoughout my scalp and when I rub my scalp I cover the desk with Dandruff. I also have a butterfly rash across my face which comes and goes on a daily basis. This rash extends to my eyebrows and is characterised by flaky skin. I have been using oroxine for two years but when I take it seems to flair up my face and when I ease off it my scalp flairs up. The rash doesn not itch. I am in a quandry. Dont get me wrong though I am still a very handsome fella. I hope this makes sence as I am speaking Australian.

Does Oroxine have long term side effects on hair growth.

Dear Archibald,
     i am simply a diabetic here to answer questions on diabetes. This question is entirely out of my league. i would recommend doing a search and reading up on the drug on the internet.

This sounds like Lupus. In fact, it sounds EXACTLY like Lupus, which is another autoimmune disease. The butterfly rash is characteristic of this disease. So is hair loss and dry, flaky skin. I would contact a doctor ASAP and get this checked out.
