    Lupus rashes often occur around the scalp and hairline. It may also cause a receding hairline and "lupus hairs", broken off hairs at the forehead hairline that leave about 1/2 inch stubs left. A biopsy, including immunoflourescent studies, can be diagnostic. I would see a derm and get a skin biopsy done. The immunofluorescent test is crucial for diagnosing lupus, if that is what it is. It is a line of immune complexes deposited between the skin layers that shows up fluorescent green. You should also get the before mentioned blood tests and urine test as well.
