I'll have my 6th infusion on 11/19. Ever since I started Remi, I have had a rash on my chest and my shoulders. It's sensitive to the sun, but now that fall and winter is here, it is still there, but not as bad. I started after my 3rd infusion getting itchiness on my shins. It went away and then after the fifth, it went to my shoulders, getting liitle pimples too. I've tried something called "SARNA" lotion helps a bit, but hydrocortisone creme helps the best. The itch is like under the skin when it acts up.....................anyone with similar symptoms???? Funny thing is when I get out of the shower it drives me crazy itching for @ 1/2 hr. When I go into the hot tub it never bothers me??? Someone that I know that has psoriasis told me that chlorine helps that. Maybe the same for this.
I have told my dr. They documented it.
