Rashes from Tecfidera

I have been have been having this dry skin rash that started on one breast first, then it move to my back then to my chest just below my chin. The chest rash is much worse than the others. Went to doc and got a cortisone shot which did nothing for it. There are no creams that help either. This is going to scar my chest and need some help. Anyone have any ideas? ## That can be a fairly common side effect of Tecfidera, along with flushing and stomach problems. Have you tried consulting a dermatologist?

My question is, did any of the T...

Me too. I am just finishing up my fourth week. The stomach cramps are terrible but bentyl helps a little bit. Ask your Dr for a script for it, 10mg once a day. As for the diarrhea, still can't figure out how to stop it. Imodium helps a little not much. As for the flushing, take a baby aspirin an hour before tecfidera n eat with it. I am just hoping these side effects go away. ## Hi Ginny, Have you tried any supplements for the diarrhea you are experiencing due to Tecfidera (Dimethyl Fumarate)? Based on my research, probiotics and activated charcoal capsules may be able to improve digestion and eliminate diarrhea. Also, peppermint oil is really good for stomach aches/nausea and digestive health. Sometimes I add a couple drops of food grade peppermint essential oil to my water or tea,...
