There is no cure for lupus, “an autoimmune disease – in which your immune system attacks healthy cells by mistake – that can potentially damage many parts of the body,” according to the Lupus Research Alliance.

The Lupus Foundation of America estimates roughly 1.5 million Americans have the condition, which can cause skin rashes, lesions, joint pain and fatigue, among other symptoms.

The disease is not contagious – rather, it’s a result of a person’s hormones, genetics and environment, the foundation said.

After receiving backlash over the incident, the salon’s attorney, Scott Wellman, told FOX11 employees “were just trying to follow the rules.” He added that the manicurist likely didn't know Lupus is not contagious.

Neither Wellman nor Brown were immediately available when Fox News requested additional comment Thursday morning.
