Scrapes Autoimmune disease???

Posted by @techi, Aug 26, 2017

I’ve been noticing a lot of scrapes all over my body at first l thought my dogs might of scratched me but then l noticed some behind my legs. I went to a dermatologist awhile back because on my chart when l was in the hospital it said psorias. I was in intensive care unit and they were giving me alot of meds because they didn’t know what was happening. I was unconscious and combative and l was told had seizures and convulsions. So l thought when l came home my skin was dry and l was scratching because of that, so that’s was why l was going to the dermatologist and also the soap and lotions l was using. So she gave me a ointment and she had me to change my soap.So after that l changed lotions because my skin was so dry. Now l have been using eurserin for a few years and l still have no problem with dryness. But now l notice these scratches. When l went to the doctor l was going to show him but l stayed with him for along time letting him know about what was going on with my health since going to the mayo clinic. I told him l had an autoimmune disease which he should have known about but he didn’t. I can’t figure it out when you see one doctor and they said we will make sure he gets the information and your doctor doesn’t or maybe l’m the only one with that problem. So l wanted to know if anyone else had scratches all over? And is that part of an autoimmune disease? Or maybe l am having another allergic reaction to some med. So if anyone can help me with that question l would definitley appreciate that because l can’t drive yet and don’t want to go to the hospital. I am well known at these hospitals and when l am right about a diagnoses right away l am stressed or depressed and then they notify you sometimes and they have to call in a med. They even can’t keep all your allergies when you tell them. So now your insurance has to get involved especially when they told you what meds you shouldn’t take and your doctor said you can that was old. Yesterday l even called my pharmacy about a refill and accidently called the same pharmacy in another state. I didn’t even talk to anyone but right away they said their was a recall on a medicine and it was a recent recall and notify your pharmasist and when you call the pharmacy and tell them the information they said we didn’t get any information on any new recalls. Then they said but you are don’t have an allergy to any new recalls. Then they asked me where l heard it from. I told them it was your pharmacy in another state. Then they told me if their was a recall they would have called me. And l said why when l called that was the first thing they said. So l had to let my husband hear it and he couldn’t believe it. Still don’t know the recall so l don’t know if it could be that or a autoimmune reaction. So if anyone knows please help. In the meantime l will search to find out what med is recalled if l can’t find out l guess l will have to notify my insurance just so they know what the pharmacy do here. Especially one of the well known ones in the U S. Said!!!!

Hello Lisa (@techi), I’m sorry you not getting a lot of answers. If the doctors are in the same network you would thing the health records would be available for other doctors to review when they have your permission. I get a lot of scrapes and scratches that I sometimes don’t notice right away. Mostly mine are when I bang my leg or arm into something when I’m not paying attention. There are some medications that are known to cause psoriasis. Here is some information from the National Psoriasis Foundation on this:

Here is the FDA Drug Recalls site where you can look to see if your medication is on the list:

Keep asking questions and pushing for answers from your doctors. You are your best advocate.

Thank you John l going back to the Mayo Clinic next week so hopefully l will get my results then. I looked up psorias and it is a immune disease but it doesn’t talk about unknown scratches so l will talk to the doctors when l get their because l am suppose to see the rheumatologist. Thank you for the websites.
