i think i am coming up on my 5th remicade infusion. it really has been helping, but i have noticed what i call my "remicade bumps" basically they are little bumps on my body that occur for a coupleof weeks after treatment. They are not itchy or rash like, more just like little tiny bumps mopstly on my arms...anyone experience anything like this?

My son developed these after his second infusion.  They are just little bumps. His were mostly on his upper back and chest. He said they didn't itch or bother him. They were just weird. They have since gone away, but we'll see if they come back after his next infusion.
