From this study (4 months ago):
I have a few bumps that itch and when scratched causes more rash to spread and is getting worse. I have been on this medication a year but just increased to 100 mg about two months ago. The bumps and itching started right after I started taking it and has gradually gotten worse especially since my meds were increased to 100 mg.
