Can Humira cause psoriasis/skin conditions?

I've been getting psoriasis the last 2 years (been on Humira for 3) and was wondering if there was any correlation.... So if other's seem to get it; my understanding of psoriasis is it's caused from your liver being overworked and the toxins find a way to leave the body through the skin instead. I don't drink, smoke, take recreational drugs, my diet is relatively 'clean', only thing I can put it to is my Humira.

Here is a link to following information

Psoriasis (new or worsening). Symptoms include red scaly patches or raised bumps that are filled with pus.

Someone should be doing liver function test at least now and then while on medication.

Unfortunately Humira can treat or cause Psoriasis. Please talk to your doctor about this as soon as possible. You may need to be taken off this drug.

yes, I have what appears to be a drug induced psoriasis on Remicade - but it isn't bad enough for me to be taken least I feel the benefit of hte Remicade far outweighs the cons of the skin problems right now.

30 plus years and counting with UC/Crohn's!
on remicade since 11/05

While my experiences may not be what everyone has had- I feel it is worthwhile to share any and all experiences that may be beneficial to others.
