Hi All,

First time poster who himself has psoriatic arthiritis and unfortunately our 2 year old was diagnosed with IJA recently.

I have taken methotrexate myself with manageable sides but my daughter has started on the injection a few days ago. She has been suffering with really bad diarrhoea today and was wondering if anyone else with little ones has suffered the same? Poor thing has been on a lot of medication this week as she also received pulse treatment of steroids to kick start her recovery.

If it continues or gets worst will take her into a and e tomorrow as the weekend
