Methotrexate and Acne

Home > Groups > Comedones > Methotrexate and Acne
  • I started a low dose (10 mg) of methotrexate for rheumatoid arthritis last week and noticed this week, after taking my second does, that my face is breaking out. Does anyone have any similar experiences? I also take 5 mg of folic acid daily.

    Thanks for any help you can offer up.

  • Hello, when I first started taking methotrexate I found that I would get bumps in my hair follicles mainly on my legs. I also noticed my fingernails grew a little 'flatter'. This really worried me to start with, but these reactions seem to have settled down and are not such a cause for worry. Don't forget to take the folic acid supplement. best wishes.
