I've noticed that I break out alot when I am in a flare. Since I've been on Imuran and had a resection to get rid of the diseased areas, I haven't broken out much at all. Until 2 weeks ago, that is. But I've been having D and some pain, and I'm having my 4th colonoscopy in 18 months in a couple of weeks. So in my opinion, I break out when my immune system is really out of whack with this disease.
diagnosed w/Crohn's 11/06. 34f with 2 boys, a lovable dog, and a wonderful husband. 150 mg Imuran, bentyl, vicodin as needed, metoprolol for orthostatic hypotension and heart palpitations. Bowel resection 9/07. Doc says no active disease, but flare-ups anyway. 11 year old son with IBS-C, on Bentyl.
