Last week I think I developed a hemmie.  Being in a lot of pain and it being holiday time (never gonna get in to see the doctor, I tried using Preperation H.  After 2 days I was starting to feel better, however my Crohns has been acting up.  I was starting to feel sick and having some stomach pain.  It didn't really hit me until yesterday that Prep H is an anti-inflammatory.
Here is my question.  Has anyone else had some effects from using Prep H.  I used the ointment but I am guessing some of it seeps into the body which was causing this mini flare.  I would love to hear if any one has ever experienced this also or if this is just a coincidence and the Remicade just isn't working.

I have used Prep H before and it never caused me any problems at all, except to help reduce the hemi's. Maybe you just are starting to flare????

That is my fear is that I am flaring again.  I just had my third infusion of Remicade a week before Xmas and it has done nothing.  This was my first full dose and if I am flaring already...I am in trouble.  I was hoping that the Remi would work..as the first two doses were like a miracle.  But now....I am a little worried.
