Lol none of us here are doctors or experts. Skin issues are fairly common with UC patients, especially those with more severe disease from what I've read here over the years. Often we develop a secondary autoimmune condition a number of years after the initial UC diagnosis (sometimes they come in 2's and even 3's). UC is likely an auto immune disorder itself, or at least an immune deficiency.
Can humira cause skin issues? Possibly. Could you develop psorasis as a secondary condition even without humira? Yes. Which is it? Who knows.
Is the psorasis bad enough to discontinue humira, findout, and risk a flareup of your UC when you're doing so well? That's up to you and your doctors to decide.
I'm on remicade and I've had contact-dermatitis and chronic dry, itchy skin. There's a number of posters with multiple autoimmune disorders, some are skin related.
