I used to have awesome skin before Crohns. I see old pic's of my self and don't even recognize them. Has anyone else experienced this? I break out all the time now. I don't heal well either. I guess it's not just my face but legs, arms and bum.:( I've been to the Derm and all they say is I have a constant infection in my body do to Crohns. They wanted to prescribe a daily dose of antibiodics. Their antibiodics are mild and almost funny compared to the ones I've been on and I know they wouldn't even touch it! Also, antibiodics on my gut daily....no way! Do any other Crohnies deal with bad skin? It hurts and makes me feel self-concious to go out. Just curious....
