When I'm in a flare, the insides of my cheeks always have sores on them. It's definitely a Crohn's problem. I like to suck on ice chips. I've never taken any meds for it because they always go away eventually.
This is why Crohn's is such a chronic disease and surgery is always the last option. If you cut something out, your Crohn's will just jump to another spot.
Diagnosed with typical Crohn's at 16.
Got lucky with Asacol for a year, then even luckier with ten years of relative remission.
Now abscesses and fistulas are having an "atypical" Crohn's party around my junk.
My HMO refused the Remicade and now I could be going on Lialda or sulfa? blah
