Could my sun-sensitivity I am noticing be related to this interaction? I have redness and blotchy skin on my shoulders and it itches. I have been on actemra for just 3 months. I went to dermatologist and doc had no clue to direct cause. My "rash" is in a circle not like skin bumps. I feel better overall with actemra, and not ready to give it up.
There are no known drug interactions between actemra and steroids however that does not mean that they don't exist.
Actemra has been responsible for skin rashes and itching in a small number of patients and it could be the cause.
Talk with your doctor about this.
