Four Visible Signs of Lupus That You Ought To Know Lupus  is  an   autoimmune   disease  that  involves the  malfunctioning of  the immune   system.   In   normal   situations,   the   immunity   system   protects   the body from alien invasion. But, if the story turns the other way round and the immunity system starts attacking the tissues in the body, lupus is the result.   As   for   the   symptoms,   the  intensity  differs  from   person  to  person. Here are some of the significant signs of lupus that become essential to be tracked. 


1. You Feel Like You Are Ready To Drop If you are ever exhausted and feel this way even when you get up in the morning, something is definitely wrong. For the records, as much as 90 percent of people living with lupus feel tired and drained. All you can do to keep away these exhaustion blues is to stay active most of the times. If you have a disciplined routine to follow, you’ll fight off the lethargic feelings like a pro.  If nothing seems to help, never hesitate to contact your physician for they know best and can suggest some viable treatments.  2. Keep Coming Down With Raised Temperatures One   of   the   earliest   signs   of   lupus   can   be   raised   body   temperature without any specific reason. People tend to ignore the fever as it may fluctuate   between   98.5   degrees   Fahrenheit   and   101   degrees Fahrenheit. But, if you are experiencing lupus, the fever may just go and   come,   and   you   need   to   be   wary   of   the   symptom   rather   than ignoring it.  To be clear, a fever could be a symptom of swelling, infection, or even the flare­ups that are common in lupus patients. 


3. Lose Your Hair Like There Were No Tomorrow If you notice the hair strands on your comb are increasing with each passing   day,   you   are   likely   to   be   affected   by   lupus   if   the   other symptoms   follow   suit.   The   reason   for   the   hair   loss   reflects   in   the inflammation of your scalp. This is not it; the hair on other body parts like   the   beard,   the   eyebrows,   or   even   the   eyelashes   decrease   in volume.  Ignoring such minute signs will cost you much in the long run and so looking   up   for  lupus   medications  is   your   best   choice   to   rely   on. However, the development of lesions on the scalp leads to permanent hair loss.  4. When The Rashes Take better Of You


If you are too vulnerable to the red colored rashes on both of your cheeks,   you   might   have   lupus.   This   sign   happens   to   be   the   most common of them all as stats say that at least 50 percent of the people infected with lupus deal with rashes. It is strictly advised not to expose your skin to the sun, for it will amplify the redness.  Even   the   artificial   lighting   conditions   could   be   the   reason   for   the rashes   on   the   skin.   If   all   the   symptoms   match   up   along   with   the discoloration of fingers and toes, visit a physician right away. 


The Takeaway  These were the four visible  signs of lupus that you should be looking for. The scope of the symptoms is lengthy though, but these are some of the common   ones   to   follow   through.   Lastly,   it   is   always   advisable   to   visit   a physician and never put things for tomorrow.
