We don't get things like jock itch, ringworm, or athlete's foot from Humira. In theory, anti-TNFs may affect the ability to fight off infections but in practice, there is no way for an individual to know if there is a relationship between the drug and the problem, especially when it is a common, minor issue of this sort. These are common fungal overgrowths that are easy to spread/pick up and fortunately, easy to treat with over the counter remedies.

It's not from Humira. But I did get a speeding ticket and I am pretty sure it was Humira that caused it.

I started chafing more after I started Humira; but that's only because I was able to start running more. Perhaps you've also changed your physical activity habits?

I can't say that I have. It's always been a bit itchy down there lol even before all this.

I will say that I do get slightly more colds and sinus infections on Humira, and they drag out a little longer.
