I’ve been on Arava (Leflunomide) for over 8 months. The only major side effect was my hands being terrible itchy.Two months ago my doctor started me Cimzia injections also.
I was briefly exposed to the sun 2 1/2 weeks ago. (don’t know if that is relevant or not) One week ago, I started to get a pronounced red rash ablove my chest, which eventually got extremely itchy. It then came out on my upper arms & shoulders, then my lower arms, then lower legs, then upper legs.( with a span of 5 days)
Today RA Doctor, put me on prednisone, oral & topical benedryl.
Anyone have this reaction to either drug??
Thank you in advance....
