I have developed this rash on my limbs, it's particularly bad on my thighs in the knee area, but also it's on my legs, feet and arms. (It started with a few papules on wrists and ankles but also rough patches in my mouth which were confirmed to be lichen planus that I had recognised as I had it over 10 years ago.)
I sent photos to the GP and had a telephone appointment, and sent the same photos to the patient advice line at my hospital with some other information. The GP isn't sure what it is but wonders if it could be psoriasis and asked me to contact my rheumatologist for advice as their are having problems using the usual contact number to get advice and guidance. I managed to get a message to the rheumatology consultant's secretary who showed the pictures to my consultant and his reply was "tell her to contact her GP".
So it seems I'm going to go around in circles ... but meanwhile the rash is sooooo itchy and affecting my sleep. I'm having to keep out of the sun too as the heat seems to make it worse.
What do you think it is? Has anyone else developed psoriasis subsequent to an RA diagnosis? Is it likely that this rash could be the result of my Rituximab infusion having been postponed? How to cope with the itching? Any creams you would recommend? I've taken a cetirizine (antihistamine) at suggestion of GP as an interim measure but no relief apparent yet.
Help! All suggestions welcome!
