Skin Rash inquiry

    • February 23, 2020 at 9:43 am

      Hi all,

      I am currently on Gamunex and as well as Gabapentin for nerve pain. I have developed a rash and bumps all over my back, chest and upper legs and arms over the past three weeks. It seems to have been further exasperated by having been in the sun last week.
      Have any of you heard of or experienced skins rashes or reactions to either the IVIG treatment or Gabapentin?

      When I was taking Gabapentin I developed skin rashes, dry patches, though it’s not listed as a side effect when I researched this med.

      Thanks Ron,

      I just found a posting online where it refers to “Photosensitive Lichenoid Eruption caused by Gabapentin” which sounds like it may be the cause. Images of the rash are also consistent with what I am exhibiting.
