got my first 2 injections of HUMIRA last Thursday (only got 2 instead of recommended 4 of initial shots.)  Anyways, no problems until 48 hrs later when I woke up scratching the heck out of my upper thighs where I placed one shot each.  Its not horrible like a rash but its really itchy just like moquito bites.  Gonna call my doc today to tell him.  Hope I don't have to stop.  Anyone with similar reaction?

I started my loading Humira with 4 pens in my stomach 2 weeks ago and will inject again in the morning. I have not had any skin reactions at all. Just felt really tired for about 48 hours after. Please call your Dr. and maybe try some Benadryl cream. Hope it gets better.

Sounds like hives? I got hives (red, raised, itchy bumps like mosquito bites) head to toe after I started predisone (of all things)...They switched me to a different steroid and they went away. Hives are an allergic reaction. Definitely call or see your doctor. Make sure it's ok to continue the Humira.
