Common Questions and Answers about Enbrel and genital herpes


Avatar m tn Would the active use of prescriptions used in the treatment of rheumatoid diseases (enbrel, humira, methotrexate, predisone), suppress the creation of anti-bodies and interfere with ability of blood tests to accurately determine a herpes infection?
Avatar m tn You need to repeat it with a type specific herpes igg blood test that gives specific results for hsv1 and hsv2. Did you have any genital lesions that were visually diagnosed as being herpes and then you followed up with the blood test or just what that you were started on treatment for herpes?
Avatar m tn Oh and a final question, I have rheumatoid arthritis,and usually take methotrexate and enbrel. I skipped a few doses of methotrexate right before and i havent taken my most recent dosage because i know these drugs can affect the immune system. So are the risks different due to the arthritis or the medications i take?
Avatar n tn Just like yeast is also a normal inhabitant of the female genital tract, if there is an imbalance and it overtakes the normal flora, you get symptomatic. Maybe group B strep is the same.
Avatar n tn I feel like my body's thermostat is broken and I'm constantly overheating. I've been taking Claritin and Benadryl but that doesn't seem to help at all. My doctor also gave me a prescription medicine called Atarax, which only makes me drowsy and doesn't help the itchy feeling. Any suggestions? Btw, I've taken blood tests to see if there is anything wrong but everything came out fine.
