I have psoriatic arthritis and have been taking Humira for approximately a year now. I also take Methotrexate. This year I have had 2 chest infections and a throat infection. I am at present full of cold and went to my GP on Monday to get my chest and throat checked but they are clear. Today, I appear to have a spotty rash on my abdomen which is itchy and sore. Im worried this could be Shingles?? has anyone else had the same sort of problems?
