Has anyone ever gotten this and how long after their transfusion did they come?
Woke up with 3 welts 2 on face and one on back
Trying to figure out if its from Remicade or one of the other antibiotics I went on

I got rashy on my face with each of the three infusions I had of remicade. Nothing like welts but small bumpy rash on face, little on my neck and shoulders. I had other issues too, terrible achy joints and muscles, oral thrush, now my hair is falling out. Hope you have better luck with it than I did.

Take a look at when you had your last Remicade infusion and when you started the antibiotic. I would first suspect the one you started/had last.

I periodically get small hives here and there. I have never brought it up to my gi. I'm not too concerned about it since it is only a few at time, and they go away in a few hours. I have been on remicade for 4 years.

I got hives (along with joint and muscle pain) about 2 weeks after a remicade infusion (I was also on 6MP). The hives looked like big flea bites and I was about to attack my cat, but lucky for him they went away after about 1/2 a day.

On my 10th day after Remicade I had horrible pain in my upper arms. I could hardly lift my arms in front of me or to the sides. I got hives and intense itching after 12 days of Remicade. The hives did look like flea bites. I have also been taking Excedrin Migraine for Occipital Neuralgia. After reading this forum, I realize I'm not going crazy and that it is all related. Does having such reactions prevent one from continuing Remicade infusions?
