Outcomes of Children With Inflammatory Bowel Disease Who Develop Anti-Tumor Necrosis Factor Induced Skin Reactions

This was H's experience however we are still waiting for remission on ustekinumab. Her Humira induced skin reactions were gone within 6 months of switching meds.
The dermatologist we saw said, and anecdotally on this forum concur, that antiTNFa drugs (Humira and Remicade) can paradoxically cause drug induced psoriasis. Paradoxically, because both of those drugs are used to treat psoriasis as well. The dermatologist predicted H would clear up after moving to Stelara and she did. Stelara works through the IL-12 and IL-23 pathways but how that differs from TNF - I don't really know.
