Will remicade treatments help rid of anal fistulas w/o surgery?

I have moderate to severe crohns disease and my anal fistula flares up about every 2 weeks or so. I am trying to avoid surgery of a colostomy. I am so sore all of the time except when the fistula drains.

    Actually, remicade can be very helpful in the closing of fistulas.

    But it sounds to me like you have boils. I, too, have crohn's and have been on remicade since 1998. Haven't had either of those problems since I started the treatment. Has your doctor recommended remicade? It doesn't work for everyone.

    GOOD LUCK!!!!!
