I've had crohn's for about
2 years, lialda, canasa, strict diet for treatment, remicade failed for me. Dr never told me I can't take antibiotics so last year I took a z-pack for strep throat. Holy crap, flare lasted a month.
Past few days, I've had a sore throat, I've been gargling with peroxide mouthwash mix and that will sometimes knock them out, not this time.
Went to Dr this morning, confirmed strep throat. Explained my crohns and that I can't take oral antibiotics without severe side effects.
They gave me a penicillin long release injection, no gut interaction. We'll see what happens overall, just wanted to share, talk to your gastro and see what injectable long acting antibiotics are available and have them added to your medical chart.
Chrohn's antibiotic, crohn's strep throat
