Hi all, I am on Methotrexate ( 10 mg.) every week and Oriencia infusions every month. I have been on MTX for 4 years and Oriencia for a little over a year. Several months ago I noticed that my finger tips were starting to peel and my hands seemed to be extremely dry. Then the next thing that I noticed was little tiny red itchy bumps on my palms and if I used steroid cream they would go away. I saw my dermatologist and he said that I washed my hands too much and to start using lots of hand cream. Several weeks later I noticed a very fine rash on the upper part of my legs, upper part of my arms but it did not itch. I went to see my GP and he said it was Ecxema and start using creams for Excema. I mentioned this to my Rummy but she didn’t say anything. I decided to see an allergist but he didn’t have any answer and said I should go back to the dermatologist and my Rheumatologist. I have an appointment with the dermatologist this Thursday but cannot get in to see the Rummy. Has anybody that is on or has been on a biological drug for RA had a problem with a rash or has developed Excema?
