does anyone get a scaly facial rash as part of their crohn's or ios this more likely secondary to the humira. it comes and goes, is primarily on 1 cheek and is bright red.

I haven't had either and am on humira so...of course there is no telling with this disease. Surely someone more helpful will be along soon to answer your question.

Im not sure if its a rash or ance, but I developed pimp-like things on the left side of my face, I blamed it on the prednisone, but I am no longer on it but still have the "rash" so perhaps it is the Humira

My skin has become very sensitive in the last six months or so- I had to stop using a face cream I've used for 20 years because it was giving me a horribly itchy rash.  It could be the meds, it could be your system overreacting to something environmental, or it could be something else totally.  I'd mention it at your next doctor's appointment.
