I had a rash pop up a month ago that spread everywhere, it is incredibly itchy! Nothing, I mean nothing, helps the itchiness. The bumps look like the beginnings of chicken pox, but NOT shingles. GI doesn't think it's related to my meds that I stopped or the ones I'm on. I'm seeing a derm for it now but he doesn't know what it is and if it's still here at my next appointment (2 weeks) he'll biopsy it. It could be possible it's from the Pentasa (I've been back on it for 2 months now too) but it seems the unlikely culprit in my case.
