Reply To: For those who get regular IVIG infusions, how often do you get them?

I don’t have (nor had) joint pain or back pain. But I do get bite like bumps after IVIG. I went to a dermatologist and they took a biopsy. They told me the bumps were not from an allergic reaction to medication (but then again IVIG really isn’t medication)… but rather it looked to be a “contact dermatitis” or something like eczema. I found this a little questionable, because for me, it occurs after every IVIG treatment.

The dermatologist gave me a medicated cream called Clobetasol and it works great. I put it on the red spots as soon as I see them popping out and not only does it take care of the itch, the bumps are pretty much gone in just a few days.

I hope this helps and I wish you well.
