Hello all its me with yes another problem,
I had my first remicade infusion on the 10th (suppose to have the second one on Thursday) and today i broke out in a rash (belive its hives) which started on my arms but is now everywhere. the family dr called in a script for antihistamine and a corticosteriod cream and told me to get a hold of my gastro in the am to find out what to do about the remicade. Does this mean that I am allergic to the remicade??????? or is it possible to give me a drug with the remicade to stop the rash in future????? I realllllyyyyyyyy need this drug to work i have been on and tried so many and none of them work the only one that does work is prednisone in very high doses which i have had to be on and off (mostly on unfortunately) for the past 2 years which has caused me to gain 90lbs and now i have full blow diabetes and i have to inject myself 4 times a day with insulin. I have been going so much my bowel has prolapsed and i have to have surgery on that now i need something to work and this was suppose to be my miracle. I didn't even call the dr until my husband came home and saw me and freaked as to why i didn't call. I am sooooo frustrated with all this and so sick of being sick i want a life back. So is there hope or will i be told tomorrow that this is the end of the road for the remicade????????????
