Does anyone have experience of skin lesions while taking methotrexate injections? I’ve been on 20mg injections since last June and from last October I noticed a skin growth / lump which grew very rapidly and is now surrounded by other smaller (but growing) versions. The GP said MTX can allow things to multiply due to suppressing the immune system and due to the rapid increase in size she sent me for a dermatology check where someone takes photos and then they are checked by a dermatologist. Apparently they think it is something benign but I really don’t like the way these are popping up and multiplying and am concerned it will start somewhere visible like my face.
I am wondering if anyone else has had skin issues with MTX? Did you change drug? Also whether I should raise this with my (very dismissive) rheumatologist? Or one of the rheum nurses. I was meant to have a 3 month review with consultant but today got sent an appointment in 10 months time.
