Thanks for reply, pray4healing.
I haven't seen the doctor since it started, but I have my usual appt. next Wednesday with my primary physician. I still have one of the 'burn' marks - this third one has stuck around a whole lot longer than the first two did. I've never been to a derm, but I've heard it can take YEARS to get appt's. with them....even worse than gastros!
I am seeing a new gastro on 1/29, which I'm very excited about (only took 4 months to get an appt!). I've had the same gastro for about 7 years now and his 'ho-hum' attitude has finally worn me out...time to move on and see if a new gastro has any better ideas besides 'go from 6 Asacol/Colazal per day to 12... or start Entocort and Flagyl again.......and then stop by in 6 months...'.
Thanks again for your info. It was very helpful.
