Are there any antibiotics that can make the crohns flare?
Ok, I’m on antibiotics right now for a week, there is no way I can’t take them, it’s for something serious. So I will have to be careful.Any and all abx can make crohns flare
Probiotics can sometimes help with this
My kiddo takes visobiome daily even when not on abx to keep his gut balanced per his Gi
Ya, I agree. That wouldn’t be possible for me right now.While oral antibiotics can actually cause remissions, data also shows that antibiotics can disturb the microbial ecosystem to such an extent that pathogenic bacteria can gain the upper hand in crohn's disease patients. This happens during the "post-antibiotic" period, especially if broad-spectrum antibiotics where used.
In theory, people with crohn's disease should be offered intravenous antibiotics or topical applications for secondary infections, instead of oral antibiotics. Of course this is not always possible, especially not with the pandemic which complicates things.
