I've been getting open sores all over my body that bleed and scab over. They're on my face, butt, both arms, chest and back. Is this normal for Lupus?

In brief: Not lupus

this sounds like a spreading bacterial skin infection, specifically impetigo.
You must be seen and "sores" must be culturerd for baceteria and MRSA. You will need an examination, evaluation, testing and therapy.
