Months before I was diagnosed, I had awful skin problems (mostly red bumps on upper arms, legs, stomach) that no dermatologist could figure out. Once I was diagnosed, it was attributed to the Crohn's. However, I've noticed the worst of my skin problems are when I'm not having a particularly bad flare up.
In the past several days I've developed an AWFUL rash of red bumps that are spreading all over. I'm about to have my second remicade on monday and am tapering down my prednisone (15 mg) and generally feeling fine, but the appearance of this rash is making me worried that I'm about to flare up really badly again.
So, for those of you that deal with this as well, any advice? Any remedies you know of? When do your skin rashes generally appear? Before, after, during flare ups?
