When my CD flared up the doc's looked at the bottoms of my feet for sores. I didn't have any then but I now have some kind of fungus? thing. Is it CD related? What were the doc's looking for earlier?

Are you diabetic? If you are, each doctor should always look at your feet.

Crohn's can come with some skin complications. I believe I have one on the bottom of my foot. It get these bumps that hurt and itch. Right now I've just been putting a ton of moisturizer on it, that does help. My doctor just said he thought it was ezcema, but I'm not sure that's correct. I do know that it went completely away on Prednisone, and came back once I went off of it!
Diagnosed with Crohn's Disease 2/06 after sever GI bleed. Has been suffering since 1998. History of rectal fistula and gallbladder removal. Just finished tapering off Prednisone *YEAH*, Asacol, Questran, Toprol XL (for high blood pressure).
