Hi around my last IV of Remicade I had a rash on chest. I was on Imuran too .I am wanting to know if you did have one did you go on to Hum.? I am not postive what the rash was from but thinking one or the other caused it so wondering about this and how others did.I did have my Rem doubled around that time. I also might have been on antibotics .I did not have any problems with rashes on it till around that last time thinking now I should have started keeping my record book earlier as my memory on all that is not the best. lol gail

Yes, I did at least. My rash was on my forearms, and it came along with joint pain. My GI determined it was a lupus like reaction to the Remicade, and I moved on to Humira. I also had my dose doubled on Remicade, which was what probably caused the reaction, but the lower doses weren't effective anymore.
Crohn's Disease for a year and counting
Imuran: 150mg
Humira:finally got approval on 9/21, done with loading doses, starting biweekly schedule on 10/10
Dicyclomine and hyoscamine for intestinal cramping and spasms

I devloped a bad rash mostly on my lower legs, but also some on hands and arms after my 5th infusion around March. Dermatoligist beleives was/is Psoiasis caused by Remicade. Stopped the Remicade in August due to this, and has been slowing going away eaither due to no Remicade or upping Prednisone to 25mg. Dermatoligst said in some cases when Remicade causes Psoriasis, Humira clears it up. Crohns is in an area they do not want to operate on,  so GI will be starting me on Humira in next week or so after Insurance approves. Had to get a test for Hepititist B today before the Insurance company would approve. Just hoping it does not cause a re-occurance.
