I was diagnosed with Sjogrens Syndrome November 2nd. I have been on MTX since. I have lost some hair, drier skin, dry mouth etc. well now I have bombs all over my face that are like pimples but not really. Any ideas? They are very uncomfortable.

The skin around my fingernails have started to peel severely. Has anyone else experienced any of these symptoms? If so, what did you do?

Very depressed!

It sounds somewhat like psoriasis, especially the nail part. Do you have any lesions on the rest of your body (e.g. trunk, arms, legs, etc.?) It doesn't sound like what I've heard as complaints about MTX, which I have been researching for my own purposes recently. I am about to start MTX for SS myself, due to the inabililty of nonsteroidals, Plaquenil, and Evoxac to totally manage my symptoms. While I am more than ready for some relief, the other side of MTX have me concerned.
