Hello : ) My IBD Nurse & various consultants / friends with IBD have always mentioned the higher risk of skin cancer if taking Azathiroprine. However, I'm only on Infliximab (Remicade) & they've never said anything about Infliximab being a problem in the sun...until now!! My IBD Nurse has just told me (after 2 years of being on it) about sensitivity to the sun on Infliximab. I asked why they had never told me before & she says that they are being cautious because there is only a 16 year research history with Infliximab whereas Azathiroprine has now been around for 50 years. What do people know about this out there please? I'm not a sun worshipper at all, in fact I'm a bit paranoid & have been low in Vit D but I'm about to go on holiday to Cuba for a family wedding eeeak!
