Is 6-MP causing my daughter to itch uncontrollably?

My daughter is seven years old with Crohn's and has been on Purinethol for a month. The last two days she is scratching nonstop. She is even scratching her chest and legs raw in her sleep? What to do?

Does she have any other symptoms with it? Rash or is it feeling of itchiness.

The two things I would be looking at having ruled in or out are:

Allergic reaction.

Liver reaction.

Has she been having weekly blood draws since commencing 6MP?

I agree with mlp, you need to get in contact with the GI.

Good news! Emily's first round of labs look good. Yay! I went for a second opinion and this doctor is pretty much on the same page about starting Remicade. This makes me feel a little better about making the choice of this therapy....until the we go for the first infusion.

Thanks ladies for your support MLP & DustyKat. I hope all is well in your homes.

Thanks for the update J. Good to hear the labs are good!

Itís always good to have the validation of another doctor, it surely does make a difference. No easier as a parent but it can be reassuring at such a difficult time.

Good luck mum, I hope all goes well.
