I had my 2nd loading dose of Cimzia last week and right after I develped a rash on both forearms, neck and face. It is very itchy and is slowly spreading. RA doctor thinks it is unrelated to the Cimzia. Has anyone else developed this type of side affect on Cimzia?

No, sorry. I did a clinical trial for Cimzia before it was on the market and no one in our part of the trial had this problem either.  But, if you go to Cimzia's website and read the possible side effects, that can be an allergic reaction or an immune reaction to the Cimzia.   
Crohn's Disease, Acid Reflux/Gastritis, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, Endometriosis, Arthritis, Depression/Anxiety.  Too many meds to list them all.  =)

Hi I had a similar experience after using cimzia I have since stopped for now as I have severe itching and rash on my face it stings when I sweat. It's like a heat rash with itching on arms and legs as well.
