Lupus Treatment in Thailand

Lupus is a long-term autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system becomes hyperactive and attacks normal, healthy tissue. Inflammation caused by lupus can affect many different body systems – including the joints, skin, kidneys, blood cells, brain, heart and lungs. 

Some people are born with a tendency towards developing lupus, which may be triggered by infections, certain drugs or even sunlight. While there’s no cure for lupus, treatment can help control symptoms. 


The signs and symptoms of lupus that a patient experiences will depend on which body systems are affected by the disease. The most common signs include;

  • Fatigue 
  • Fever
  • Joint pain, stiffness and swelling
  • Butterfly-shaped rash on the face that covers the cheeks and bridge of the nose or rashes elsewhere on the body
  • Skin lesions that appear or worsen with sun exposure (photosensitivity)
  • Fingers and toes that turn white or blue when exposed to cold or during stressful periods (Raynaud’s phenomenon)
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain
  • Dry eyes
  • Headaches, confusion and memory loss


While the exact cause of lupus is unknown, it is believed that it may be a combination of underlying factors, such as;

  • Environment
  • Genetics
  • Hormones
  • Infections
  • Medications 

It’s also possible to have experienced none of the known potential causes of lupus listed here and yet still have the autoimmune disease. 


Treatment for lupus depends on the signs and symptoms the patient has. Determining whether their signs and symptoms should be treated and what medications to use requires a careful discussion of the benefits and risks with the patient’s doctor.

As the signs and symptoms flare and subside, the doctor may find that the patient may need to change medications or dosages. The medications most commonly used to control lupus includes;

  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
  • Antimalarial drugs
  • Corticosteroids
  • Immunosuppressants
  • Biologics
