Hives

Hives

Has anyone randomly broke out in hives all over your body? I few weeks ago I had a rash head to toes and now it came back… very bumpy, itchy, red, and painful. Im on my second dose of benadryl but I cant tell if its working. I went to the derm and she prescrived me hydroxyzine but the pharmasist said it interracted with my plaquenil so Im just going to stick with benadryl 4x a day. How long do they usually take to go away.. my mom said maybe a few days

TMJ Pain

TMJ Pain

Has anyone used salonpas or peppermint oil for TMJ pain?

A MyLupusTeam Member said:

Wearing a well made mouth guard helps me a lot. I have one the dentist made that is very sturdy. Many people with TMJ are nighttime teeth clenchers and grinders which increases the pain.

Stopping Plaquenil

Stopping Plaquenil

I have been taking Plaquenil for 3 years. I want to come off of it and discussed it with my doctor and he told me to just stop taking it.

Wondering if anyone else has stopped taking it and which approach they took?

A MyLupusTeam Member said:

Unfortunately, after a couple of years taking Plaquenil I became intolerant to it and had to discontinue taking it. It took several months before I started to notice a difference in how I felt and… read more
