It seems that the congestion I have from spring pollen is developing into a sinus infection. Since Remicade patients are strongly encouraged to take action at the first sign of infection, I called my doctor. He agreed that this should be treated immediately and prescribed an antibiotic (Crackerjack-500 or something like that).
My only hesitation is that I have read so many stories here about people who have had their UC triggered by antibiotics, or have flares triggered by antibiotics.
Should I be concerned?
