Hi all, wondering if anyone can give any advice? I am currently on methotrexate for CIU and had my flu jab on Tuesday. The site of the jab has formed into a hard lump which is very painful and hot to touch. It also has the beginnings of a hive forming directly around it. I’ve been hive free for a week now (hoping it’s the methotrexate finally starting to work after 3 months) and this has got me a bit worried, has anyone had this before?
Karen Ritchie I get mine tomorrow and I think I’ll be the same. Will also have a flare for a few days.
Thomas Hey. I have it all over. From head to toe. It’s very hot and very painful and very hard to the touch. Tried a lot of different kinds of drugs also natural.. Unfortunately did not help The only thing that helps me is to put ice on the spot. My heart is with you.
