I think my current flare was caused by antibiotics. I had a HORRIBLE sinus infection...the sickest I've ever been, not counting my Crohn's. It lasted 3 weeks, and I was put on Amoxicillin...that made me SO sick (diarrhea 20+ times in a day), so I got on a different antibiotic and finally started feeling better, but then I flared. 6 months later, I'm still tapering off my pred from that.
