I was diagnosed with UC - on the left side from the rectum and about 14 inches into the colon in May and after a 4 week hospital stay came home on Asacolon and Prednisolone (40mg decreasing to 5mg over 8 weeks), also two rectal ememas for two weeks. This is my last week on the steroids thankfully. However I have developed a rash on my face, neck and arms. It's not itchy but looks like a heat rash and is quite inflamed looking. I checked the side effects of Asacolon and rash is listed however does anyone know if it's due to a build up of the drug or should I have had the rash from the start? I also read that rash is one of the symptoms of UC?
Thanks in advance
