What will happen if I shut off inflammation totally?

Let's say I take a magic pill that completely, instantly, and permanently shuts off all my inflammatory and pro-inflammatory systems but does not directly affect my anti-inflammatory systems. What will be the drawbacks?

@Green Xenon,
Well, cuts wouldn't heal. They'd probably get infected, sepsis and you'd die.

Aren't most fatalities associated with septicemia due to massive clotting of blood cause by the inflammatory response to the infection?

Without inflammation, the chances of disseminated intravascular coagulation are rather slim. Right?
