I've been taking it for about 15 months now and after I got over the original issues, taking a punch to the stomach and hot flashes, I've been side effect free until about a week ago. All of a sudden I have a rash/red pumps on my upper body and face (strangely the left side of me face only). I've had dry skin all my life but this is different. It's pimply almost on my face. Seeing my neroulogist on Friday and I think I want off tecfidera.

Been on Tecfidera about 3 months. I have had several occasions now where i feel like my skin is on fire (like being sprayed with pepper spray), especially in my face. The area where it feels like it is burning turns VERY red. It usually lasts about an hour. It usually happens about 30 minutes after taking the med. It is starting to become more frequent. I am going to stop taking it!
