    What does a plaquenil rash look like


    I saw a GP about it (not my usual one) and they strongly suspect it is being caused by MTX but I have just spoken to the Rheumy nurse who thinks Hydroxy is the more likely suspect or it may be an autoimmune response so now I have to withhold all rheumy meds. It seems to improve when I am on steroids but only at higher doses. Thanks, Tamara I am on all sorts of meds including MTX and Hydroxy.
