So I am working on going on my 5th Infusion of Remicade this coming October. I have recently noticed a few small patches of dry/or irritable skin on my thigh, and on my stomach. I don't know what to think, I have been doing really good on Remicade since I started in January, but now... I am sort of getting worried. Any comments, much appreciated :)

In 2005, researchers found that Remicade side effects can harm the skin. Remicade doubles the risk of developing skin infections, eczema, skin eruptions, and more. If you develop any symptoms of skin-related Remicade side effects, it is important to seek medical attention.

Sounds like it may be eczema.

does the small patch start as a tiny red bump? because that is a fungus...
