I'm bouncing over from the Crohn's side of HW to ask a question about Stelara. I am a Crohn's patient who has failed all approved Crohnie meds. I got Stelara approved off-label based on the phase 2b trials and I'm thrilled! After failing all of the other meds, my lab inflammation levels have dropped in half in 6 weeks (yea!!!!!).
However, at about 7 weeks in, I've started developing an itchy red, raised rash on my upper arms with a little on my neck. I'm not sure if this is a side effect/reaction to stelara, or if, perhaps, Stelara has changed my immune response and I am not reacting to some soap, laundry softener, etc., that previously never bothered me.
Anyone have anything like this happen? Heard of anything like this?
Thanks in advance!
