I was wondering if anyone else has sores on they’re head from the RA medicine?

I had sores on my body not my head when I was taking Plaquenil but once I stopped taking it the sores stopped happening. It's been a while but I know I took an oral antibiotic and some ointments.

MY doctor just filed that medicine. She's worried about my vision, didn't say anything about sores. Yikes!!

I have had these for over 2 years when I started taking methotrexate. I told my rheumatologist he gave me a shampoo that didn’t work, and I went to see a dermatologist and now I just started applying metronidazole lotion, so now I’ll see if that works. I quit taking the methotrexate and now taking Rinvoq.

Barbara how long have you had the sores on your head.

I have never had sores on my head from arthritis however about 10 years ago I did get sores on my head and the left side of my body from shingles.

Have you talked to your rheumatologist about these sores and have they looked at them?
