While CD can effect any part of the intestinal tract from the mouth to anus, it is not possible to say if the sores you are having in the back of your throat are related to CD. Aphthous ulcers are quite common among those with CD. However, I have not personally seen them appear "white." Could you have thrush? It causes white patches, usually on the tongue or gums but can happen in the throat. Could you have strep throat? My daughter gets strep almost every year and seldom has a sore throat in spite of the infection.

Is there some reason you can't have your primary doc or GI look at this and make sure it doesn't need treatment?

Hi I would go see your doctor about this.
Hi, I am teddybearweiser, I am a male.
I was diagnosed with crohns disease when i was admitted to the hospital
in 1992, in Jan of 1993 I was back in the hospital for surgery for my crohns. I had part of my right colon resectioned with ilecolonstomy.
 My GI doctor has me on Asacol, Dicyclomine,Imuran,Celebrex and Remicade. B-12 injection once a month.
My Internest doctor has me on Lisnopril-HTCZ and Folic Acid. Diagnosed
with Osteoarthritis July 2007

my throat is not sore at all, and now the sores are gone again...i wonder if it could be allergies or something. im sure they will be back, eventually, and then maybe i will go to the drs. and have them checked out..
