First timer, My mother(85yrs) has had rheumatoid and osteo. for 15 yrs. 2 yrs. on humira injec. Sh developed severe itchy rash. Treatment is a steroidal creme. It works but application is a daily routine. I've noticed the rash is almost a blister now. Like she's been burned. Also she's sick of thigh injections.  I got excited when I've ead all ur comments. Can she not just inject in the abdomen(the least painful for her). Her nurse says no, because of the protocals associated with her usage. She is getting funding for her Humira.  Anybody with opinions please help us. Thankyou.

Protocals with usage??? I inject in the belly just switch sides but once I had to have daily jabs in my thighs for another condition and the nurse told me to wiggle my toes while being injected to help relax the muscle? Worth a try.

Hello Wholey,

For injection assistance, or to speak with a nurse call 1.800.4.HUMIRA.  Nurses are available from 8:00AM – 8:00 PM, Eastern Standard Time, to provide injection help and assistance to patients taking HUMIRA.

This seems to be a good place to ask your questions re Humira and injection sites.
Take care,

Contact Her Doctor or local hospital Don't persist with a rash like that
as for the injection site it can be either thigh or tummy makes no difference
