Rash is back with a vengeance - anyone else have this reaction to MTX?
My face is like a cherry tomato once again - all swollen pink and lumpy. I took my MTX as usual last night and woke up like this although I didn't get it last week after the MTX - but had a similar facial rash a few weeks ago when dose was raised to 17.5mgs. I'm going to have to come down to 10mgs apparently now I'm on Hydroxy/ Plaquenil but my GP said I can stay at 15mgs for a few more weeks. I'm so muddled about this allergic reaction because I only started the Plaquenil (400mgs) on Monday so I suppose it could be to that as well?
Any one else have any ideas what could be triggering this? I did wonder about it being a light sensitive thing but it doesn't feel like sunburn at all. Although it has been lovely up here for the past few days - but today I felt I had to avoid being in it - and it's still very cold so I can't see that it would be the sunshine thing?
