Help I'm so itchy! I've been taken over by hives. They are in my ears and on my face as well as all over my body. I took my Humira shot yesterday for my UC and today I'm covered in nasty itchy hives. Its my third injection, and since my first one my skin has been unbelievably dry- to the point of bleeding. The worst places are my scalp, my T zone on my face, and as weird as this sounds one nipple. I've been extremely moody as well. I'm a 24 year old female and I've had Ulcerative Colitis for 4 years. Diagnosed with JRA when I was 15. Any helpful information would greatly be appreciated.

You shouldn't be posting here. Call your doc and ask for further directions. Sometimes, these things necessitate hospital visits if you have breathing issues.

seems like you have developed an intolerance to the medication. did you tell your doctor?

injection/infusion reactions can be very difficult since they are meant to stay in the body for weeks/months. i had a hives reaction to an iron infusion and was COVERED- head to toe- for a while. must've been 2-3 weeks of suffering.
