Yes...Sweet Syndrome is quite rare.
My wife was diognosed with it a few months ago by her Dermatologist and she was prescibed the predinisone to clear it up....which worked well. Recently we thought it was coming back however, after a dermatologist visit it was determined that it was just folliculitis.....basically bacterial infected pores (small bumps). Mainly on her legs, probably from shaving. The dermatologist said that the folliculitis likely occured becasuse of her shaving and her surpressed imune system (from the Simponi for RA). She has been taking Simponi for 2 months now and we still haven't seen much improvement. about to give her the third shot in a few days.....hopefully it works soon! If not, we may go back to Embrel. Also we just learned that she is anemic so now she is taking Iron and Vitamin C daily, which is supposed to improve her extreme fatigue. We will see! My wife and I are fairly new in this endeavor of managing RA and associated medications, emotions, side-effects, etc.... If anyone would like to post helpful links, ideas, advice, other forums or communities to seek help and support I would sincerely appreciate it. take care everyone!
