Has anyone developed blisters while on cosentyx?

I use cosentyx to control my plaque psoriasis and it works very well. However I have noticed that I get painful itchy blisters on my feet while on the medication. When I'm off the medicine, my psoriasis suffers greatly but when I'm on it my get blister once or twice a week.

If it's a controlled substance you might get one dose and a referral. Call your primary who writes your script. ER or UC will just be expensive
