 Just curious if anyone else has noticed a pattern of sore throat and small sore little red bumps on the inside of hands during flare up times? Also I have  noticed  that chronic sinus infections seems to be a pattern also? Anyone?

I don't know if this might be the same kind of thing or not, but I will get mouth sores and sometimes if I get them up on my soft palate or in the throat, it will feel like I am coming down with a sore throat.

I always have a CD flare after, or during a sinus infection...I also get the mouth sores at the same time. In fact the mouth sores seem to "announce" that one will follow the other. My doctor explained that during a sinus infection, post nasal drip down your throat and into your tummy,/bowel triggers an inflammation.....seeing as the with CD patients your GI system is super sensitive to "invaders" or overeacts automatically to something foreign. With me...I had chronic sinusitis for years and with it the above problems. An MRI revealed how seriously infected my sinuses were. I was on antibiotics for months and suffered a terrible flare. ...but once the sinuses cleared up tummy followed suit.
I also have an eczema patch on one hand that never goes away....but gets much worse during a flare....and then my other palm develops a same problem. When the flare is over, the one hand gets better but never the other.

very interesting....the connection between the two. I can feel my sinus' acting up this morning so I better get on some antibiotics quickly before surgery. I don't want anything to delay the date!
Thanks to you soon!.
