Hi all, just after a little advise. My 14 year old son has been taking MTX since May for systemic JIA. He has an infection on his toe which for most people would heal on it's own. Even after antibiotics it has not completely healed. He also has a couple of blisters which won't heal. Dispite keeping them covered and bathing in salt water ect.
We are seeing the consultant today but I'm concerned that she will stop the MTX. I'm worried that stopping the MTX for a week or two will set him back and I'm not sure he would cope emotionally with a setback at the moment.
Aaagh this blood disease. Hate it hate hate it!! Sorry just had to have a little moan. Grrrr
Would appreciate any advice.
