  • hi, Im a chronie with 22 yrs experience lol. Current meds are humira injection and 6mp. I came off infliximab due to having a drug induced lupus. Humira seems to be doing my bowels good but joints remain an issue (idiopathic arthritis). I am also suffering from painful rash and skin splits in those intimate areas and natal cleft. mri shows no fistulas or any internal probs. strong steroid cream only works whilst using it but due to strength can only use for 1 week then stop for 2. obviously due to steroids thinning skin i dont really want to use it. oral steroids are a no-no as i get steroid psychosis. anyway i have appointment with dermatologist in feb, but was wondering if anyone had or heard of same thing.

    cheers
