I am on Remicade, Prednisone, 6MP and Colazal. For the last few weeks I have had burning pain all around the anus area and for 6" radius from anus. Feels like a bad "But" rash but there is NO rash. When I sit my But gets very sore and even my 2 pelvis bones that I sit on under the padding of my bum are sore and burn. Could internal hemorrhoids cause this much discomfort or what else should I be looking for, Any suggestions??? thanks , Frank.

Ouch! Sounds very uncomfortable! Is there a particular place that hurts if you press on it? Do you have a fever -- even a low-grade one? Does it hurt all the time or only when you go? Any drainage? Sorry to ask so many questions but this is strange. It could be anything from nerve damage to a drug reaction, and who knows what else. Have you seen your doctor yet??

I've never heard of this, sorry to hear your in so much pain. Could it be a reaction to the meds? When did you start Remicade?
