Remicade and a rash?

Hi all

I joined this forum looking for help or advise. I've had uc for about 10 years, remicade has been the only drug that has worked, I've been on it for 8 years. I havnt tried another biological.

A few months ago I developed pus filled bumps on my hands and feet. The derm said this was pustular psorises. I was prescribed a topical cream which helped a bit. I now have what appears to be really dry red skin which is flaking almost like a sun burn on my arms, back and chest. Predisone makes this go away almost over night, but it comes back after a few weeks off predisone. The gi and derm don't know if this is caused my the remicade. Has anyone experienced it this? What did you do to treat it?

Thanks!

I had the same thing happen to me. This unfortunately is becoming more common with people on remicade. I only lasted a year on remicade with my last infusion 6 months ago. I still have the issue though it seems to be getting better.
