Have been on savella, plaquenil and medrol (similar to pednisone) and have not experienced any red elbows.

I called the company that makes Rutixian, they had never heard of it, said it could be a rash, that is a side effect. I was think rash as In bumpy, and itchy but maybe this is just a different kind. But mine is never hot or any stiffness, just embarrassing especially with summer coming on, can't hide it without roasting! 😡Thanks for your reply! 💖

I have been in these 3 forever, however it could be a combination with the Rutixian. Thanks! 😻

Don't worry about hiding it be your self and if they ask tell the truth no worries about what anyone else thinks.

It isn't swelling red, but deep, dark red and the skin around the elbows is mottled. Doesn't hurt, but am wondering what could cause it? Also I also get the red face and chest and terrible sweating about 8-10 times a day, and always about 10 minutes after I eat. (Already through menopause)!
