See your doctor!: Hi. Please see your doctor sooner than later. You may need a lymph nod biopsy. Humira (adalimumab) is a great drug, but is an immunosuppressant, and may increase the risk of various infections and malignancies. Please don't ignore this! Good luck!

See doc ASAP: Since Humira (adalimumab) may adversely impact your immune system, you need to see your doctor immediately since even a minor infection for others may become a life-threatening one for you. Don't wait another minute.
