I personally do not know if the reaction from Remicade would be any different in a younger person or not. I was able to use it for a short period and had prob. while taking the infusion. The infusion area where I go is full of people who really like it..not all these people are diagnosed with PSA. I found the best drug for PSA for me was Embrel. I know younger people who are on Humira and it works well for them. If you are able to pay for these drugs which are injections not infusions then it would be a lot easier on your son. The are delivered to your door and he injects himself once a week. The embrel kept me free of outbreak for 2 yrs. All the drugs for Psoriasis will stop working after a while... all will help with the pain and joint damage, but he may have to change at some point. He needs to work closely with his dr. He will help him to learn what triggers his flares. PSA is not easy to deal with, but learn all you can and just be patient with him. No one really understands what you go through ... the pain is bad at times but the ugliness of the Psoriasis is so stressful..hope this helps a little... tell him he is not alone.
