Hi All, just wanted to see if anyone could give me advice on what to do about having a moderately diseased rectal region due to Crohns. The only thing that works on healing that area up is Remicade, but when I get towards the end of my treatment cycle my rearend gets enflamed. So much to the point where leakage occurs frequently, typically at night. Is there any other treatments or medication I can take to help out with this issue? My GI has never been too helpful about treating these symptoms. It's really frustrating and can be quite embarrassing.
