In July 2006 "just in case" my daughter had a bacterial infection, the GI at the hospital ordered Zosyn for her - it made her Crohn's symptoms worse, resulting in cramping. Perhaps your docs should consider meds that help the abscess, but are not problematic for Crohn's. Flagyl and Cipro can, for instance, be used to try to treat an abcess without making Crohn's worse.
There is a slight potential for an adverse drug interaction between fluconazole and Entocort:
"Fluconazole may block the breakdown of budesonide by the liver. If this happens, blood levels of budesonide could be increased. This may cause an increase in both the intended effect and the side effects of budesonide, including stomach irritation, facial swelling, and mood changes. If these drugs are used together, your doctor may want to monitor you closely for side effects and adjust the dose of budesonide if needed.Discuss this potential interaction with your healthcare provider at your next appointment, or sooner if you think you are having problems."
