I am a 65 yr old “gouty” woman(6.9 uric acid level). For the past 2 weeks, I have been on allopurinol(100 mg twice a day) and colchicine(once a day for next 3 months). The past 4 days I have experienced tiny, slightly itchy bumps breaking out on my back(I never have skin breakouts), which began on my lower back, and now have moved to include upper back. It isn’t severe, but annoying, and somewhat uncomfortable. Could it be a reaction to allopurinol, and should I stop taking it and call my doctor?
Thanks for this site, Keith!😁
