Recently when I shave my legs, I get red bumps on them, which I am guessing are irritated hair follicles. Anyhow, I have one right now that appears to be quite infected...it is red and swollen and I am really hoping it goes down!
I am on prednisone, Imuran and just started Remicade yesterday.
Anyone else get these? I had one about a month ago, but it wasn't this bad. It eventually went flat and is now the color of a dark bruise (I think it is a scar now). I also have others that have done the same thing, but never really oozed or ulcerated (sorry to be so descriptive!).
I have read that there is a skin condition associated with Crohn's and I honestly don't know if this could be that or irritation/infection from shaving.
I guess if it doesn't go down, I will need to get in and see my Internist, in case I need antibiotics...
