Hang in there Harley Diva. I can recall getting some minor infections shortly after starting enbrel as well. All I ever had to do was miss an injection or two--one injection never made a huge difference in how I felt. After my body got used to the enbrel, though, I stopped getting those annoying little infections. Even so, it took quite a while (6 months) for the enbrel to fully kick in and take care of my joints. It does work though!
