The dreaded trial and error process. Good thing you seeing your Rheumy tomorrow. Are you taking anything else that could cause the rash? Is it painful? When its only one side we worry about Zoster. C

Hi there! I was diagnosed with PsA at age 32 and I’m 43 now. I was on Enbrel for 9 years. It worked well with me but not 💯%. They wanted to put me on methotrexate but I refused. So I just dealt with the swelling and moderate pain pretty much everyday. Long story short... my Rheumatologist has me start on humira, which only lasted about almost a year. I did not like it at all. Didn’t really do much for me. So now I take Taltz. I’ve taken my 2 nd month shot last week and so far I have zero swelling and zero pain or aches in my hands. But, the first month I took it and got upper respiratory infection that lasted the whole month and the day I took my 2nd shot, by evening I noticed a rash on right side of my stomach and it’s a week later and still there and I’ve tried all kinds of creams and have dr. Appointment tomorrow with my Rheumatologist.
