Hi there,
So I have been taking Plaquenil for a couple of weeks now and I have noticed my face breaking out, not a lot, but these little pimples  of some sort and they hurt.  I am not one to get acne and usually have clear skin sad
Has anyone else had this happen while on Plaquenil? It is the only medication I take and I have tried to get rid of it but nothing helps sad
I know I shouldn't be whining about this and I hate to sound so vain, but its embarrassing!
Anyone else??
Thanks in advance

Hi there.  I, too, had an initial acne breakout after first starting plaquenil.  After about 2 months, though, the acne went away and never came back.  I think my body just had to get used to the plaquenil.
