Hi folks- I generally post on the UC forum, but very few people over there are using Humira. I just finished my first 4 pens over the past 2 weeks, & am scheduled to do the final 2 loading doses this coming Thursday. Then switching to one pen biweekly. Anyway, I have a NASTY toenail fungus on my big toe- it was there prior to me starting the Humira, but it seems to have suddenly gotten much worse- the fungus-y part covering more of the nail, the nail starting to come off the nail bed at its base.... pretty gross! So my overactive imagination kicks in, & suddenly I have a vision of myself having this fungus spread thru my body, thanks to the Humira & Imuran... am I being crazy??? What do you guys think? I hadn't planned to call my PCP- it is just a toenail, but... now I'm thinking I ought to let them know. Any of you have similar minor fungus infections like this? Think it's cause for concern?
