I am currently on embrel, 50 mg, twice a week and predisone, 7mg a day (along with various other meds nut don't think they would be causing this). I have ntoiced that my skin has been very itchy but when I scratch it leaves little red dots (like tiny bruising, the size of a pin head, alll over the area that I was itching) and they don't go away for a week or so. Additionaly, I am bruising very easily. I have bruises all over my arms and legs. Add these together and my arms and legs look pretty beat up. Any ideas?
