My son has problems with red eye.
I took Humira for about four months before I realized it was no better than Enbrel for me. I switched to Oteza, BRIEFLY (see below).
As the other person mentioned the biologics and DMARDs weaken the body's immune system. I do not know your son's age but I'll assume he is no different than kids and adults who are not too careful when touching the eyes. Think of the various places one can get an infection or virus: schools, transportation, gyms, dirt, swimming pools, and so on. You may want to ask your son what he typically does, or what he was doing several days before his eyes became red. Also, make sure he uses a handkerchief and not his fingers to "clean" his nose. That may guarantee him a nasal infection. (Get a bottle of saline spray at the supermarket ... make sure he sprays his nostrils in the AM and in the PM ... it has worked for me).
And now for Otezla if humira and other drugs do not work. Did I get psychologically depressed! The condition was on the warning package so it prepared me. It has taken longer time to "scrape myself off the floor" than it was taking Otezla. Be careful ... be VERY careful!
