Recently started Hydroxychloroquine as diagnosed with RA and Osteo but yesterday noticed some small spots that look like blisters around my bottom? Could this be a side effect please?

    Hello @JuliaC and welcome to the community. We are a friendly and supportive group and I hope that that will be your experience as well.

    I understand that you have RA and Osteoarthritis and have been prescribed hydroxychloroquine and are wondering about side-effects. If you have any concerns of course you should raise them with your GP or consultant. Our website though contains a lot of useful information and I would recommend having a look around it and have put a couple of links in below which may be of interest.

    Please do keep posting and let us know how you are getting on and I am sure that others will connect with you to share their support and experiences as well.

    With very best wishes
