Just wondering if any who takes Humira has a similar reaction to this. Usually after my humira injection I have a weird facial thing happen - my lips get very sore and chapped and then the next day my face gets very red and hot. My face then begins to peel away. The worst of it is my upper and lower lips down towards my chin. Just wondering if this is something others experience or have heard of. Thanks

I have not heard of this. I suggest calling humira and reporting and reporting to your doc. Sounds like you are getting a high fever???

Nope never had this or heard of it either. I would definately call the Humira people and your doctor.

Yikes. Definitely something to tell your doctor about.

Could that be psoriasis? Does anyone know?
