well was at hospital today and saw the GI doc not sure if the rash is from the remicade for sure or not so going to go for my second infusion tomorrow.  Taking antihistamines so going to continue them and steroids before my infusion.  He said we'll play it by ear and see how it goes tomorrow if i have a reaction we'll have to stop the infusion.  SOoooooowe'll see how it goes tomorrow am.  hope not too madely my lil one doens't have school on thursdays so she'll be with me!!  She makes them write a happy face on the tape of my IV lol

I got a rash after my last remicade infusion, so I took benedryl and it seemed to work. I started Imuran the same day so I'm not sure which one caused it. I also get benedryl before my infusion too. That seems to be the only thing that worked for the rashes. Much luck to you tomorrow. Let us know how it goes.
