I had psoriasis way before I was diagnosed with Crohn's..although most of the time I keep it pretty much under control. While I was recovering from my resection surgery in July I realized that I had these 2 nasty spots on my legs and a couple really small spots on my arms that would not go away. At my first infusion of Remicade (I was on, then off and then back on after resection) the nurses and a dr were talking about
how dermatology patients were now going to be eligible for remicade. So I asked questions and found out that remicade works for psoriasis too!! Now that I've been back on it for several months, my spots are gone!! YAY!! I say for the money I (well ok my insurance pays) pay for Remicade, it should work for more than just one thing! Just thought I would share that info !
