Probably not related: If he has been off the metformin and Glimepiride for 8 months and is still getting lesions then it is not due to those drugs. Metformin is an extremely useful drug for diabetes, and the only one shown to reduce heart attack. I'd suggest he talk to his md about going back on that.

It's important to always protect your skin and avoiding prolonged direct sun exposure. Be safe! ...Read more
