hi, it is long time that i do not post, everthing is fine, my baby Thomas is 6 months old, crohn' in remission. However my psoriais is spread everywhere on my body, i might be 70% cover, this happened after the birth. I have been discussing wifth my dermatologist about change medication that could benefit my crohn's and psoriasis. My derm mentionded Remicade or Mx. Any suggestion?? i am not sure if Mx would be suitable for me ( I have strictures). She is going to send a letter to my GI for them to decide...... On my last appointment with my GI he told me there is not any other medication for my crohn's,that i should stick with imuran indefinitly. I would appreciate any coments. Thanks.

I would think the Remicade might be a problem for you too as Remicade causes fast healing and could add to your strictures. At least thats what my docs told me as I have the stricturing type of Crohns too. I know with the Methotrexate some have had great success with it, but you can't get pregnant on it, but you can with the Remicade. Sorry not more help.
