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?

It can cause a rash. I would advise you to call the doc and tell him.

You are experiencing a hypersensitivity or anaphylactic reaction to the medication. You need to speak or see your doctor immediately.
If you don't want to go back to Warfarin, you should talk to your doctor about Arixtra or Lovenox.

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!
