do any of you have sores that will not heal i have sore in the middle of my back it has been there for a couple of months now i am wondering is it the lupus or the medication causing this or could it be something more serious.

My daughter had a sore that was not healing because of the suppression of the immune system due to the lupus. The doctor recommended a cream called Sudocream which helped it to heal fairly quickly. In the meantime keep the sore as dry as you can

Good advice. I had a sore that was not healing due to immune suppression, and my Dr. gave me an antibiotic cream very similar to the one you mention, and it worked well. Within a week, the sore closed up and healed.

Not to disagree with you Derek, but my daughter has problems with wounds not healing and the plastic surgeon and the wound healing specialists all told us to keep it covered and moist. Interestingly, the random sores began healing after she started methotrexate.
