I developed an odd scaly patch on my upper lip. Very small. It grew larger until I was becoming self-consciencious and covering it with more and more make-up. Thought I had a skin cancer so saw my PCP. He referred me to a dermatologist but said in the mean time use the antifungal med because that's what it looks like to me. I thought surely he was wrong. But the scaly patch cleared quite rapidly. Under the patch was a tiny, grayish pearl like thing that was flat with the skin. This "pearl" continued to grow and rose up and up from skin level. Frankly I thought it looked somewhat mushroom-like. Anyway, on a trip out of state in November, I awoke one AM and it was gone. It must have fallen off in my sleep. Nothing has returned.
Come to think of it, this began when I was on remicade but got a lot worse when I switched to Humira.
