i know this may seem like a stupid question but does anyone else get warts and can they be associated with lupus i have never had a wart before is this a new symptom excuse me if this sound s trivial but since it is the first one for me i am wondering is it the lupus or could it be lupus medication which makes me more susceptible to viruses would appreciate anyones opinion thankyou kim l

as your immune system is depleted, you will be more suseptable to "catch" something.
i have not read or heard of warts being associated to lupus.
I am going to ask a silly question. Are you sure they are warts and not "skin tags"? Skin tags are usually found on the neck area or in the folds of skin. They are raised fleshy areas with no color change.

I had 3 warts 2 of which have finally gone after 2 years. I was told Because of the Imuran( immune suppression drug) that would make them worse, same with cold sores. They are both viruses so it make sense if your immune system is compromised then they would be worse. I went off my imuran in Jan and 4 weeks later 2 of the warts were gone!!!! Now I'm gettin ready to go back on so we will see what happens!!

It's odd you should bring this up. I'm 54 and never had warts but now I have 5 on my hands and one small one on my foot. All have cropped up within the last few months. I thought it was strange but didn't associate it with anything.
