I have RA and have been on pred. and MTHX for the past 9 weeks. 3 weeks agao I got my flu shot and since I have never had chicken pox and am not immune my Rheumatologist said to get the vaccine - so I did (it is a live virus). Last week (Thursday) I caught the cold my husband and kids have been passing and around. Sunday I woke up and the injection site of my chicken pox vaccine was red, sore, warm to the touch and raised. Tuesday I had flu like symptoms and the spot on my arm was normal looking but I noticed I had a "spot" on my stomach. Wednesday I noticed that I had several spots on my back, legs, neck, scalp, stomach, - whole body. Mind you there were probably in total only 50 spots but still quite a few to just suddenly appear. They looked like bug bites or pimples. I looked it up online and everything that was happening to me matched what was called a "break through" mild case of chicken pox from the vaccine. I itch but didn't think it was that big of a deal so I didn't say anything about it to my dr. Today is Friday and I went to my rheumy to get my first injection of humira. I did not mention the spots or anything as I still didn't think it would be a problem. Now I am having second thoughs and was just wondering if anybody has ever had a "break through" mild case of chicken pox from the vaccine or has any thoughts with me having started humira today?
