Well, I went to GP about the rash I reported earlier this week. Diffuse, red pinpoints. The GP phoned rheumatology who suggested I stop methotrexate completely and wait til my next appointment - which isnt for a while. Unhelpful. Then she phoned dermatology who agreed to see me this afternoon. Was looked at and told by a young doctor who really seemed to know her stuff, that the injectable mtxate contains other ingredients and my reaction is probably to that. Gave me some antihistamine and steroid cream to calm things down. and suggested that I go back to the loathesome pills expecting the rash to subside. I'm obviously to go back if things get worse.
Apparently there are several types of skiin reaction - one is vascular, the other is what i've got and is superficial and spread out.
This may help someone - so hope it does. I'll let you know when I have more to report
