Hello Nina, and welcome to HW. I hope you find a lot of support here, as well as all the answers you need.

I've never heard of vulvar Crohn's disease. Do you mean fistulas, or are you having other problems too?

nina-b, welcome to Healing Well! I am so sorry that you have developed this. From what I had read before, this can be quite uncomfortable, if not downright painful. As you know, this is a quite rare extraintestinal manifestation [EIM] of Crohn's. I have my share of the wierd EIMs also. Thankfully none involve the "girly" parts. Can you tell us how your doctor plans to treat your problem? I am quite curious.

Glad you joined us! ~~ Ides

yes--I'm with you. I didn't know we had an official diagnosis. Years ago my gyn sent out samples of my blisters to make sure it wasn't herpes or the like. My own GI thought my disfigured female area and the blisters might be something scary but alas, it's just the crohn's. I have several types of symptoms, the biggest being little blisters, little pimple-looking things, and a few stallagtites! I can't tolerate metronidazole. When on prednisone, they all seemed to shrink. With lots of D, it all gets worse.

My gyn says it like this: lots of women have cauliflower looking terrible infections and warts. I just have a few extra Georgia O'Keefe wrinkles and additions.

Keeping the area dry really seems to help. Popping the blisters doesn't--makes me more uncomfortable. Please keep us updated. I'd love to know if there's more treatment out there!
