I have been off Rebif injections now for 14 days.  about 2 weeks into being at full dose I noticed a small red spot on my right cleavage area.  As days went by I noticed it getting larger and redder,  It was flat and didn't itch or hurt.  By the time I took my break from the Rebif, it was about the size of half a dime.  I called my dermatologist because I had something taken off my face last year around this time that looked real similar to this and it came back pre skin cancer.  I have an appointment the 22nd.  about a week ago the skin on top of this spot started to dry.  3 days ago after I got out of the shower the skin came off and now it looks like it is 1/2 the size it was and going away.  I am thinking this might be something the interferon caused.  As I get farther out from my shots, the smaller it gets.  I have read that interferon can cause weird stuff with skin.  It is still there and I am keeping my appointment on the 22nd.  I have no other spots anywhere that have developed.  Has anyone else had this happen to them?  I know I am a freak when it comes to meds and my skin is really weird so I would believe just about anything at this point.  Just curious if anyone else had anything like this.

I have a small red spot on the left side of my face and it won't go away either. I noticed it about 6 months ago after I had stopped taking all of the CRAB treatments and the CellCVept I was on. I keep meaning to ask my neurologist about it but always forget because we seem to always be talking about other important stuff with MS. one good thing is it is not getting any bigger.
