Methotrexate Erythema Causes and Reviews


Fifth disease is a viral infection caused by parvovirus B19. The virus only infects humans; it's not the same parvovirus that dogs and cats can get. Fifth disease mostly affects children. Symptoms can include a low fever, cold symptoms, and a headache. Then you get a red rash on your face. It looks like a "slapped cheek." The rash can spread to the arms, legs, and trunk. Adults who get it might also have joint pain and swelling.

Fifth disease spreads easily, through saliva and mucus. You can get it when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Frequently washing your hands might help prevent getting the virus. Most people become immune to the virus after having it once.

Fifth disease is usually mild and goes away on its own. However, it can be serious if you

  • Are pregnant
  • Are anemic
  • Have cancer or a weak immune system

Methotrexate Erythema Reviews

Mon, 21 Feb 2011

My 27 years of MTX therapy have prevented physical deformity but caused me to have damage to my lungs. I am short of breath on any activity. MTX helped the pain somewhat but at the cost of my lungs? I was never told about this possibility nor told it ultimately RA could be fatal. I am only in my 50's not ready to die yet!

Sat, 26 Oct 2013

has anybody had any positive affects from taking " Methoblastin " (Methotrexate) for psoaratic arthritis ? these reviews sound terrible and i have been told to go on it... im a little scared now :(

Sun, 15 May 2011

I have been on Methotrexate for almost months and last two weeks have had severe pains at times lower back , It feel like the kidneys because one side hurts at times and in the mornings it is worse.

Hi I haven't had any side effects for the past six years of Methotrexate. but recently I am having some stomach discomfort like as soon as i eat something i have the slight discomfort on my abdoman. I take a glass of green leaf juice and i am fine again. I would want to know if I should reduce the dose.
Sun, 24 Jan 2010
I just started Methotrexate, I started itching in the same areas where I had experienced itching with the chicken pox 2 years ago. I am a 51 year old female who contracted chicken pox at 49 years old. This frightens me as I know this can cause disseminated herpes which can be potentially fatal. My Rheum told me to take Benadryl. I believe this is going to be my one and only shot this drug scares the death out of me.
