From this study (1 month ago):
The rash is red and bumpy like razor burn and hurts. I never got it until after my second pregnancy and got switched from subutex to suboxone strips

skin rash is similar to bed bug or flea bites.
From this study (3 years ago):
Ryan on May, 31, 2011:
I switched to suboxone film, and I have uncontrolable itching and rashing on my feet. I thought it was athletes foot, but I've been using lamisil for two months, and tried everything else. Also, I just started working in the heat, and I have heat rash all over my glutes and lower back. My friend switched to films also and his psoriasis flamed up real bad. He went back to the pill form and his problem cleared up right away. The film is making my skin flare up so I'm going to switch back to the pills. I've been on it for 1 year now, the films for 3 months.
