    Hi brooke! I’m sorry to hear that you’re itchy; I find chronic itch one of the most difficult symptoms for me. I thought you might be interested in this article about common treatments for PsA:

    We also have some more detailed information about other biologics, like Enbrel:

    What are Biologic DMARDs?

    I’m just curious if you’ve been to see your Rheumatologist about the itching? About 85% of us have the skin condition psoriasis which causes itching (even on unaffected skin sometimes). I would just want to make sure it was the Enbrel and not something else 🙂

    Thank you for your question! Take care,
