I also have DLE and was dx'd in 2012. I was prescribed Clobetasol (High potentcey steroid) cream for my lesions. Like you, mine presented on my nose, scalp and upper back. I had no issues with the steroid causing hair loss. The lesions themselves caused it. Clobetasol was the only thing that cleared the lesions and stopped the hair loss. Sun avoidance/protection is KEY for DLE sufferers (and SLE sufferers as well)! Sunscreen, hats, long sleeves etc...
I take Biotin and Vit D.
