Jessica…I am sorry for the rash but I am glad to hear that some things are resolving. It is the same for me. My stomach is a problem again, but other things (fatigue) seem to be improving, but as it comes and goes, it could just be a good period. To me, the rash sounds potentially like shingles. The hypersensitivity and the pain are what make me think that. Also, shingles is something that often occurs in conjunction with autoimmune disorders. It, like a lot of disorders, can occur in a wide spectrum of presentation (severe, less severe), but the rash is a hallmark sign. Is your rash everywhere or more “band-like” in specific areas or on one side of your body. These are some of the characteristics. Also, shingles often will turn into blister like spots. I hope it resolves and it sounds like the Benadryl might be helping. How is your fatigue? Any better?
All my best,

I was on weekly solumedrol infusions for 21 months, and yes, I got a rash. Only my rash was all over my body, even ulcerated on my lower legs. I finally got off of them in Feb of 2004, but still have scars from the infusions.
