Discuss with GI MD: Treatment of anyone with an autoimmune disorder starts with stress reduction, proper diet and adequate sleep and rest. Lack of any of these can worsen/bring out symptoms. Sometimes treatment involves biologics of which Humera is one, steroids, and 5-aminosalicylates if the colon and rectum are involved. The right medication choices need a discussion with your MD who knows extent of your disease.
Talk with doctor: You should be in contact with your doctor by phone if you are in pain or bleeding. Going to the er should be a joint decision, unless you are experiencing extreme uncontrollable pain or other unusual or concerning symptoms.
No: Crohn's disease is not an infectious disease. That being said you can have a GI tract infection on top of the crohn's especially if you have been treated with antibiotics and this infection can be contagious from contact with your stool. In general the gas or flatus should not be able to spread any infection without direct stool contact.

Low risk: Crohn's disease also increases the risk of cancer. That risk is a lot higher than the risk from infliximab (Remicade).

Hello, I have crohns disease and many antibiotics causes a sever flare up. I've had strep for almost 6wks now. I'm allergic to penicillin, so that limi?
Which abx?: If you are truly allergic to penicillin, erythromycin would work for strep infection as well unless you have had an adverse reaction to it. If your problem is primarily GI, consider taking a probiotic with antibiotic in the future. May check with allergist to find out if you are still allergic to penicillin as well. By the way, there are good biologics which are effective for Crohn's disease.
