Possible: Lupus is a clinical diagnosis supported by lab findings. However it is not associated with mouth and nose sores and thus you may have another kind of autoimmune disease +/- lupus. Given your profile, you really need a rheumatologist's help.

See below: Lupus can occur in children. It would probably be best at this point to see a rheumatologist to see whether or not you have lupus.
