I'm wondering if any of you have (or had) skin rashes after being on Humira or Remicade.
Here's my story, and I'd love to hear yours too!
I've been on Humira (every other week) for about 3 months. I recently noticed a rash on my chest---reddish, sometimes a bit itchy or irritated after a shower etc. I've had it for a month, and it's not going away, nor is it getting worse. My Dermatologist did a biopsy, and determined it's a rare inflammatory condition. I did lots of Internet research, and my conclusion is that my lowered immune system due to the Humira is causing/contributing to the problem.
I'm interested to know if anyone with Crohn's who is on Humira or Remicade has also experienced rashes, and if your doctor diagnosed it, the cause, the treatment etc.
Thanks so much in advance for your input!!
