Esbriet Rash


Hi I’ve been on Esbriet for 6 weeks and one silly mistake putting the wrong factor sun cream on (used 15 instead of 50) resulted in me getting the dreaded rash. I’ve been told to stop taking my meds for two weeks and it will clear up. Then to reintroduce 1 tablet 3 times a day building back up to 3 three times per day I have a few questions that I hope someone with experience of this situation might be able to help me with. Firstly, in stopping the meds for two weeks, might the disease progress quickly in that short time?and secondly, having started the regime again and using strong factor sun block, what’s the chances of the rash returning.? If it does, what happens next? Many thanks for reading.
