Im back..

I started rowasa about 3 weeks ago and it was working wonders. this past week i have been itching bad all over. I had a few tiny bumps. last night i had bumps on my back and belly and they were just a little bigger ..looked like bug bites and this morning i have one on my hand and they itch. could it be from the rowasa? im on asacol too.

any advice or input would be sooo appreciated.
thanks!

It does indeed sound like hives. You should contact your doctor ASAP because it could be a 5-ASA allergy, or a reaction to the sulfites in Rowasa. / Old Hat (30 yrs with left-sided UC ... [etc.])
