Weak even after most symptoms of strep were gone. Three days after last dose, developed cough, achiness and congestion. Treated for inflammation with steroids.
From this study (3 months ago):
I was taken off Remicade to see if it was the cause of my eczema. My eczema healed, but I need the drug badly! What can I do to fix this side effect?
I also can't breathe within an hour of my infusion. Benadryl beforehand is not helping. Suggestions?
From this study (3 months ago):
Appeared three weeks ago and still spreading despite steroid tablets. Acute itching, unable to sleep because of itching.
