Hi everyone,
I was out doing gardening yesterday and last night came out in an itchy rash all over my body took an antihystimin (spelling?) which took away the itch but still had rash this morning got up and my hands and face were swollen went to A&E was given another antihystamin while waiting to see doc when the doc came she told me i had got a servre reaction to something i told her i had crohns and was having remicade and she asked me 
"whats that"!!!! i told her and she has given me a steriod (Prednisolone) which i have to take 8 tablets 3 times a day for 3 days what im concerned about  is could this rash be a reaction to remi ? so late on from infusion i had it a week ago today and seeing as the doc didn't know what remicade is will it be ok to take these steriods i tried to ring the GI but as its a bank holiday here in uk can't get hold of anybody any advise would be great thanks  from an itch Bev x
