You are experiencing a severe allergic reaction to the medication, have someone take you to the ER asap.
My husband had 3 doses of Remicade with no success and ultimately had surgery to cure his UC. He is doing well from the surgery but he has a horrible rash and itching - it appears systemic. He saw a dermatologist who did not correlate the itching wiht Remicaide (he thought it might be a reaction to his colostomy bag or tape) but after doing some reading we think it may be a reaction to the Remicaide, even though he is no longer taking it, it may not be out of his system. This may not be a direct answer to your question, but I suspect an allergic reaction to Remicaide is your underlhying problem.
