I have rheumatoid arthritis and have been on methotrexate for many years. I got a cortisone shot in my ankle joint and about 4 days later a red raised itchy & painful patch at the injection site. Looked like shingles that I have about 10 years ago. After some online research, I found that this happened to 36 out of over 5,000 RA patients on methotrexate (also with anemia). Guess I'm one of the 36. I'm watching it to make sure it doesn't spread and the Dr. told me to take benedryl. Has this happened to any of you and did it spread and how was yours treated. Thank you.
