My husband developed rash when he was on Pradaxa. It went away as soon as he stopped. He has now been on Xarelto 20Mg about three weeks and the similar rash has started. His back is full of small red spots that itch and his upper chest front seems red and itchy. Could this go away with time or will it just get worse as it was the case of Pradaxa?

My mom has a rash of small red spots on her back that itch intensely. She is on xarelto. Did you find any more information about the possible cause of this? Did your husband find a remedy, or have to switch drugs?
Please let me know of any information you have. Thanks in advance!

In May of 2013 I had a dvt in my left, lower leg. I was put on Xeralto immediately. Within a month or so, I developed a rash in both lower extremities.
Per my doctor's approval, I stopped taking Xeralto a year ago, but the rash I had at that time is still present, but only in the upper area of the same leg as the dvt. A dermatologist also examined me a year ago and indicated that she has seen quite a few patients who had rashes attributed to blood clots. The steroid cream she prescribed didn't work. Only an over the counter benidryl like salve helps, but the rash shows no sign of going away. Note, I stopped taking Xeralto because my body recovered from the clot. I take no such medications now. Although I am seventy, the only medication I take is percoset, infrequently and unrelated to the blood clot. I do feel that the rash is related to the Xeralto, but have no proof.
