      been on ivig for almost three years. Sun has always given me a red raised rash on forehead. Now I’m getting blisters about the size of a pencil eraser. They are in my hair and behind my ear. Any thoughts. Do I need stronger sunscreen or does the sun have anything to do with it?

      I get small blisters on my palms and feet, and eczema patches about the size you describe on my legs and trunk from the IVIG… I haven’t had any sun exposure (though it does sound nice), not sure if that’s the same thing as you have or not. I took pepcid (it helps with allergic reactions) along with benadryl before and for 48 hours after my infusion this time, and have had less of a reaction.. (less of a skin reaction and unfortunately less improvement this round too 🙁 )
