I always like to post this link for people to make sure they can compare what they see on the pics of the link to what they actually have as a guide....
Frist set of pics is hemmies, second set below is perianal crohn's skin tags (which are nothing at all like hemmies nor should they be treated the same as hemmies).

Huckleberrie, it sounds like you’ve been neglected by the medical world, as so many of us have. Has nobody suggested a colonoscopy for you? They should definitely do one with all the bowel symptoms you’ve been having/bleeding etc!
I understand you wanting to give up on the medical professionals, they don’t really understand and never really can, my last GI was completely negligent and didn’t even look at my abscess, just waited for me to end up in the ER again….. but now I have found a crohn’s specialist who actually understands and it is so worth it.
In the mean time though, have you heard of the specific carbohydrate diet? I am currently reading breaking the vicious cycle and I highly recommend you read the book – even if you don’t decide to try the diet. It’s amazingly factual and full of stuff I think would help you. Not to mention the wonders of the diet, which I am *trying* really hard to stick to. I guess trying is better than not trying at all but I need to be a lot more strict with it! It might just be an answer for you that doesn’t involve doctors….. I’ve heard stories of the SCD clearing up peri-anal disease miraculously, drug free!
