Crohn's and Rash
I am a 31 year old female diagnosed with Crohn's a little over 2 years ago.  Over the past few days I have developed a rash on my face, neck, shoulders, and chest.  The rash itches and there are small red bumps covering these areas.  I am not currently taking any meds.  Does anyone know if this could somehow be related to Chrohn's?

Hi sunne....I have had Crohn's since 1970, many flares, but have never experienced a rash like you describe. As far as I am aware, Crohn's does not affect the skin, but it is a tricky disease.  I would see your PCP or a gastro, let them "eye-ball" the rash and go from there.

Take care,
Liz.
