I just took 2 benedryl hopefully it will take the itch and swelling down…and make me sleepy so I don’t scratch my legs off ….any comments or stories wld be awesome!

Hope everyone is doing well!
Take care.

    Hey there,
    Sorry for my late response. Hives were bad on the bottom part of my legs for about a wk after my remicade. Never happened before, but I will just up my benadryl intake before my infusion. Thanks for checking in!

      Hey MG,
      Training is going good. Actually did a nice bike ride yesterday and I’ve started doing some push-ups after about a 15 year break…

      As for finding a doctor on the site: you can check out the list at the doctor list page that’s good the hives stopped. Have a great day! Adam
