Check out this link, it has pics of hemmie (the first group of pics) and also perianal crohn's skin tags, aka;elephant ears, (the set of pics below the hemmie pics), as you'll see in the pics the 2 are quite different from one another, you can compare what you're look like to the pics...
Thank you everyone for your quick and so well put together responses. I am 30 years old and as far as I know I don't have anyone in the family with this condition. The reason I was worried was because I had seen the link posted here and my anal tags are very similar to elephant ears. I also have some joint pain, and have read that people from crohn's can be asymptomatic for years as far as gut problems are concerned.
I appreciate you sharing your personal experiences and will let you know what happens with the doc. In the meantime, please do post any more experiences and inputs. Thanks
Well if your tags resemble the ones in the link I posted, those are related to crohn's only...and yes, you could be a mild crohnie for yrs before the onset of severe symptoms...you want to ask your doc to send you to a GI (gastroenterologist), and the sooner the better.
