It's been a while since I've posted on this site! I had extremely severe UC for 3 years before Remicade put me into remission after trying and failing every other alternative from medication to alternative medication to diets. The first 18 months of being in remission were bliss. However, the last 18 months, I have had endless infections. Right now, I have around 7 infections - mainly fungal and yeast related. I feel so sick with all of these constant infections I'm considering coming off Infliximab or else starting back on SCD to see if this helps clear it up. For example, I have had for the last 18 months, a scaling peeling ear infection at the back of my ear affecting the skin. I have a peeling nose infection, proximal subungual onychomycosis toe infection etc etc etc. These infections are definitely the lesser evil compared to UC but it's really getting me down lately and affecting my confidence and my relationship.
Any advice would be comforting
