 Hi everyone,
 
I'm not sure if this is crohn's related, but for the past month or so i have been getting pimple like rashes on my upper chest, lower belly, and even my legs sometimes, (but not the knees, i know some times crohns people get rashes on the knee), i was wondering if this could be my medication (6mp, protonix, remicade, rozerem-for sleep), or just a common rash? I have even tried putting acne cream on them but it doesnt really do anything, and i see a new one every 2 days just as another is fading away. I haven't been using new soap or detergent or anything, so i just wondered if anyones had anything like this or not.
 
Thanks
kix

Not like you describe, but I had rashes on both legs below the knees that itched like crazy. Never could get rid of it . When I was put on Remicade, the rash went away. I still must be carefull what soap and wash products I use, but nothing is as bad as the rash that went away. It left scars.
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

If they are tiny little blister like pimples, it is the start of psoriasis. Try to get to a dermatologist fast. Another indicator is if you cut yourself or get an abrasion elsewhere and it never heals right or takes FAR too long to heal.

Psoriasis is another auto-immune disease that many of us have. I have it on my hands, feet and head.
33 years old. Diagnosed in 2002ish. 
Taking Asacol, Lomotil TID, and on Remicade since 2004. 
Lower Bowel area only, except for the short stint (about 2 weeks) that I had mouth sores.  Also have external/anal fistula and anal/vaginal fistula.

Sniper, yours was probably psoriasis too.  My GI's husband is a dermatologist who uses TM shots of remicade to treat really bad psoriasis.
 
For some reason, it doesnt help me though (or even worse - maybe it IS helping) confused
