Is anyone here on the forum with Sweet Syndrome? I know this is pretty rare skin condition and shows along with RA. Mine when active is the nodular lesion type. It showed up only once, was diagnosed and actualy disapeared when I was taking higher doses of Prednisone (which takes care of that condition). However I tappered to 2.5mg of Pred 2 weeks ago and I found the lesion on my elbow again... I have doc appointment on Tuesday and probably they will increase steroids again.. I was so happy to just get rid of this medication at all. I am doing pretty good on Humira and Plaquenil. Humira suppose to help with "sweets" too.
Just wondering how your doctor is treating your Sweet Syndrom - is anybody here???
When I went to deramtologist they just treated me like some unusual phenomenon... They didn't know what it is at first as I had the lesions on my elbows, in my nose, on my legs and knuckle. They gave me some printouts with (awful) pictures to read - that it maybe some VERY VERY RARE skin condition They scared me so much back then... After biopsy it turned out it is something completly different. Why to scare people when you are not sure what is it?
