Hi Lee,

I can’t see a need to stop allopurinol immediately, as you don’t know if your itchy bumps are due to allopurinol, colchicine, or something else. And, as you say, it’s annoying, but not severe. But, I think it’s wise to call your doctor, for a blood test. You can get:
A) Liver and kidney function tests that will help your doctor take a view on itchy bumps. Important for checking the severity of your skin reaction.
B) Uric acid test to see if your allopurinol dose should be increased.
c) A proper medical opinion, and hopefully peace of mind, about the skin breakout.
