Hey all,

I've had CD in throat, but usually only on tongue or inside cheeks.
Now my throat is very sore. My GI said it looks inflamed and if it doesn't go away, start low dose of pred in 2-3 days.

I also have a mucousy cough. Is this common with CD in the throat or you think it is a virus.

My symptoms are sore red throat with inflammation and white stuff on the roof of my mouth, and mucousy cough. So sore.
I've been gargling with salt water. Any other suggestions?

My CD in intestines is flaring and my joints are sore too.

I don't know much about Crohn's in the mouth or throat, but a very sore red throat could be strep. I hope someone runs a strep test (if they haven't already)  before putting you on prednisone. Just my two cents.

I hope you feel better. Good luck,

Jan

My husband had the same symptoms (including the white stuff, but it was on his tonsils) and the dr. said it was tonsilitis, which is what comes before strep.  I also think you should have a strep test and probably be on antibiotics, not steroids. 

Crohn's Disease, Acid Reflux/Gastritis, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, Endometriosis, Arthritis, Depression/Anxiety.  Too many meds to list them all.  =)

Well, my throat is a little better. Now I have a sore cough.
I was in a bad flare today too so I made a veggie chicken soup.
I thought of strep, but I'm thinking it's not that since it's getting better.
Maybe a virus...

I haven't really heard about Chrohn's of the throat.
but I do know that both my mother (who also had Crohn's) and I had sore throats ALL THE TIME as children.

I wonder if that could have been a warning sign? ..

If you don't have sores in your throat, then it is probably a virus or strep, but I'm not a doctor. I hope you feel better soon
