I have Crohn's disease, can a rotavirus infection cause complications?

Probably not. Rotavirus commonly affects young children rather than adults & causes watery diarrhea that usually goes away on its own in a few days.You may be able to get rotavirus if you are taking meds for crohns (they suppress your immune system & make it harder to fight off infections). It should not cause any long term complications. Drink plenty of fluids with electrolytes (ex gatorade) & see dr if needed.

I have Crohn's disease? Am I more susceptible to clostridium difficile infections?

Not really. It is not that you're more susceptible, it's that you are more likely to be treated with antibiotics because of your condition. As c diff is typically a post-antibiotic illness, you are more likely to experience it. But it's not directly because of crohn's. Read more...

Yes. Clostridium difficile risk is increased in anyone with abnormal bowel lining (crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis), and in any one who is immune suppressed. This includes the medications used to treat crohn's disease. It's very important to wash your hands regularly to prevent infections. Alcohol based cleaners (purell) do not kill c. Difficile spores. Soap/water is still the best thing. Read more...

36 yo female with right ear pain for 2 days (no fever, drainage or other symptoms). History of ear infections as adult and child. I take azathioprine for crohn's. Should I go to doctor or wait?

Earache-wait? Hard question. Pain is your body's way of saying that ain't right. Generally i would say two days, you should be seen. Barring obvious signs of serious illness and a contraindication to using decongestants, afrin nasal spray, otc antihistamines like Claritin or zyrtec and valsalva maneuvers (popping ear like you coming down a mountain) may do the trick. Don't forget teeth can cause ear pain. Read more...
