    Background Hydroxychloroquine sulfate and other antimalarial drugs have been used successfully as adjunctive therapy for patients with cutaneous lesions of dermatomyositis over the past 20 years. An increased incidence of cutaneous reactions to hydroxychloroquine has been postulated to occur. The typical dose for hydroxychloroquine is 200-400mg per day and is based on a person’s body weight or if you are overweight, your ideal body weight. While hydroxychloroquine is considered a relatively safe medication, like all medications there are potential risks. These include body rashes that often will itch. Rashes may occur in up to 10% of patients, most commonly morbilliform or psoriasiform. Note that adverse cutaneous reactions to hydroxychloroquine are reported to affect more than 30% of patients with dermatomyositis, compared to a lower risk of rash in patients with cutaneous lupus erythematosus.
