I've been on Apixaban for a 2 or 3 of years and over the last year I've started to have skin problems. First a patch on my foot that appeared to be ringworm and did actually respond to ringworm creams, but did not clear up and is still here. Also had itchy scalp for about 6 months and it's spreading. None of it's unbearable (yet).
It could in fact be ringworm I suppose, although it doesn't look like ringworm any more to me, but I can only tell by looking at Google photos.
GP hasn't come up with any idea yet, but seeing her again in January (6 weeks for an appointment !!!), as the creams and shampoos she prescribed for fungal infections haven't cleared it up.
Itchy skin is a listed side-effect.
Has anyone else on Apixaban had skin problems and what if anything did you do about it? I may have to change NOACs but want as much info as possible before going down that road.
Thank you 🙂
