It has been 1 week since my second infusion, and for the last couple of days my cheeks have felt hot. I am only on 2.5 mg of prednisone, so I know it's not from that. Some people have said to me, "you have a little sunburn!" The thing is, that I haven't been out in the sun, and besides I always wear 30 spf when I am. I know that one of the side effects says, "lupus like rash." But this doesn't really look like a rash. The redness isn't all that obvious. It is the hot cheek feeling that is the most obvious, and I have no fever. Also, I am STILL having diarrhea. How long did it take you all who are successfully on remicade, to get rid of the diarrhea (if that was your major symptom of crohn's)? I thought it was supposed to be pretty immediate. So how long should I try the remicade if its failing, until I call the doc up and tell them I don't want to be on something with all these side effects that isn't even helping me and to possibly switch to something else like humira? (whoa, run on).
Thanks in advanced!
