Just wondering--Had my first remicade infusion almost 2 weeks ago--due for second infusion in 2 days. Everything seems to be ok--some improvement --less bleeding and actually slept thru the entire night twice now!!
Two days ago I developed a localized moderately itchy rash just on my forearms. I had worn a wool sweater that day with a cotton shirt under it, and I have never been bothered by wool before. Took benadryl and it is still there but not bothering me a lot.
Anybody else have this happen on remicade? Hope it's not related. Some bleeding has returned, too. Hope when the loading doses are over this stuff takes hold and really works--I'd sure like to stay off the dread pred.
