I started on copaxone 4 weeks ago. The first two weeks went really well & I had no side effects. Since then every time I have injected I’ve come out in a hot red swollen rash, which has then turned into a hard lump, like a marble (sometimes bigger) in the injection site.
Has anyone else had this? If so what have you done to stop the reaction?
I’ve contacted my MS nurse & she said it’s a normal reaction but I just wanted to know from people who’ve been on it a while if this happens in the long term or just whilst your body is getting used to the medication?
I injected on Wednesday in my side & the redness is literally covering the whole area.
Ive tried sudocrem, antihistamines & antihistamine cream, I’ve also try cool packs afterwards & heating the area beforehand. Nothing has worked.
I’m just covered in red splodges & lumps & don’t know what else to do.
