I've also posted this on the UC page,
Has anyone ever suffered with external ulceration, I had a fistulotomy on wednesday so I'm quite sore anyway, but I seem to have a ulcer type sore that has developed on the opposite side around the base of my skin tag (doesn't my bottom sound attractive!!), lymph nodes are up on that side also, fun,fun,fun.
So just wondering if anyone else has had ulcer type sores develop externally?

It's more likely that it's another abcess/fistula developing and with you having anal skin tags (unless you're 100% positive the skin tags are from previous hemmies) then those are strictly CD related and not UC. Fistulas are also more common for CDers than UCers as well.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it! LOL :)

There is a hemmie just behind the skin tag, and when the hemmie is inflammed it increases the size and discomfort of the skin tag quite substantially. Please no more fistulas, my backside already looks like a crash site!

With Crohn's disease, it's possible to develop small ulcers in the genital region (caused by the same disease process as the ulcers inside the GI tract), so that may be a possibility. I know it's not wonderful, but it least it would be better than another fistula!

PS: I like your sense of humor (the crash site).
