Hairloss due to Crohn's?

HELP!

Can someone tell me if loosing your hair is a result from Crohn's?  I loose hair in clumps when I shower.  I am tapering off of Prednisone and started Remicade in Feb.  Could hairloss be a side effect of the medication.  If it is, I may have to switch meds.  I can't live like this.

Also, what can I do to make hair grow back???  Any suggestions are appreciated!  Thanks
