Imuran...Black moles

Hey everyone, I have been on and off imuran (150mg) at weight of 128 which is quite high of a dose. I have been on it for about almost a year now, and it is barely working.
A couple of months back I have noticed many small dot like black moles on my skin and I go quite scared as I got out in the sun a lot.
The question is if these moles (god forbid) are cancerous, will switching to another drug stop its progress or reverse this skin damage?

I’m really sorry you are dealing with this. It sounds like you should see a dermatologist.
Hopefully the dots are non cancerous and nothing to worry about, but only a dermatologist can know for sure and if (God forbid) they turn out to be something serious, you can deal with it earlier rather than later.
Sending a hug!
