I have had a rash come up all over my neck, top of chest adn my cheeks and nose feel sunburnt adn inflamed.
My sulphasalazine increased 3 weeks agop and I noticed last week my knuckles have got huge and a dry rash on the back of my hands. this is still there but now I have a weezy chest and the rash is starting to become painful and is very itchey.
I went into my chemist yesterday for some cream but she sent me straight upstairs to the dr surgery who told me she thought t was the increase n sulphasalazine adn gave me some tablets and a cream and told me to ring if it got worse.
Now because it is a weekens I phoned my GP out of hours and just saw a GP who told me the only way they would be able to clarify it is was a reaction to the sulphasalazine is if I stopped taking all my medication adn started taking them again one by one. - - - Alarm bells are ringing in my head as I am currently on 18mg pred, 2x3 daily sulphasalazine, ibuprofen, omperazole, and iron tabs.
She gave me a prescription for piriton and steroid cream.
Some much needed advice needed please, should i really stop taking all my meds???
