I have I have...

I have I have been experiencing a skin irritation. it feels like my skin is ultra sensative .. almost like a burn I guess but I have no rash whats so ever I take Humira for crohns disease and have experienced this odd feeling beofre but it usually goes away in some time

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the skin issue? Have you noticed any major changes in your overall skin or nails recently?

No nothin like that

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No i mean i have had skin issues as a result from the humira like foliculitis and staph but all are visible im feeling like this has more to do with a nerve issue

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
its in my stomach to ribs and also now on my back to spine... its not like unbearably painful but any time I move or my shirt touches it it feels very irritated. No rash tho what so ever. its very sensative to touch.. Ive had this before on and off but it usually subsides a lot faster.. Now its been bothering me for almost 2 days
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
is it possible its a yeast or fungal infection thats not visible?
I have gotten visible ones before from the humira but never where i couldnt see them.. and this is not itchy at all
Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 7 months ago

I have heard of shingles without a rash before

this sounds like classic shingles

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
well if that is the case is there anything I can take that will ease the sensitivity? and does shingles come and go? like lets say it goes away tomorrow or the next day.... would you still think it was a shingles out break?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
