Lupus isn’t genetic always. I have no one in my family with any kind of autoimmune disease yet I have lupus.

My husband just asked me the same question. I used to work in a building that was loaded with mold. When the new owners were going to buy the bldg., they tested...I was told there was mold - but it was the "good" kind of mold. I'm going to look into your question. I saw on this site where a Nurse said she and 3 coworkers got lupus virally transmitted. I never heard that before.

Haven't heard that as lupus is genetic. That would be a question for your rhuemy.
