I just started taking it a few days ago and have noticed my skin has a itchy prickly feeling. I havent noticed any kind of rash just that. Iam trying to stick it out. If you have experienced this did it go away?

I cannot take the Plaquenil. I started out w/itching and then got full blown hives. The funny thing was, it was only after taking a shower that I had the problem! But man, was it bad! I wanted to claw through my skin it was so bad! I do know that for some people the itching has gone away. I think some have taken like Benedryl to help, if the itching is the only problem. Hope it clears up for you! I wish I could take it, maybe I would be doing better! I'm sure more people will be along w/more experience w/it! ((HUGS))
