    Skin rashes and pigment change. Atabrine, specifically, can cause yellow pigmentation of skin. Sometimes Plaquenil can also deposit in the tissues of the body and cause the skin to take on a greenish tone.

So far from the other posts it may seems that Plaquenil may be somehow associated with skin rash that looks like small hives and patchy itchiness. Lupus is an inflammatory autoimmune disease that typically affects the joints and skin. Lupus of the skin often presents as a rash in the form of lesions, or as areas of red skin that resemble sunburn. Oral hydroxychloroquine and topical steroids are the mainstays of therapy for mild cutaneous lupus.

    For example, it may be combined with an antibiotic to treat chronic Q-fever, which humans usually catch from farm animals or raw milk. Plaquenil is used to treat other types of infections too.

    I got this after about 5 weeks, mine was a blistery rash and it was only on my shoulders, upper chest and upper back. My doctor said it was photodermatitis and caused from a sensitivity to the sun caused by the plaquenil. I had to off of Plaquenil in December after 2 months. I don't remember what the warnings were about the sun because I live in Michigan and we don't have much sun that time of year. One thing I would keep your eye on is if you develop a rash. I developed a rash on the back of my neck then all over my front from neck to pelvis area. Malar rash is a red or purplish facial rash with a “butterfly” pattern. It covers your cheeks and the bridge of your nose, but usually not the rest of the face.
