Hello Surferboy,

No, antibiotics are very important to lupus patients just as they are to others. Probably more important as having an infection can bring on at best a mini flare, at worst a major one.

The only difference between an SLE patient and anyone else is that they may need stronger antibiotics and over a longer time than normal to get rid of the infection.

As you are not on immunosuppressants for the moment you don't need to worry about getting an infection any more than anyone else. Obviously, you musn't let an infection go if you do have one but I somehow can't see you ignoring anything so I don't think that will happen :wink2:
