I recently (last year) had resection surgery, and was on Remicade for like, 3 IV sessions around that time too... I had the surgery because my body didn't react to the Remicade...

since then I have had some weird acne... Just wondering if anyone else has had this same problem.. and how they fixed it... i have tried a lot of different things... I had no acne before this point in my life...

I've had this problem for almost a year now

Can you describe the appearance of the spots? There are some rashes that are associated with Crohn's and you may have one of them on your face. The rashes don't look like pimples exactly though, so the appearance would help eliminating or suggesting Crohn's related rashes. Also, what meds are you on? It could be an allergic reaction to your meds.

Hey, thanks guys-

I am taking Protonix, Pentasa, and on and off with Iron. Last summer i was on all of these same meds and I didn't have this problem. I have tried everything that you can buy at Target.. I've tried Aveda, Proactiv, and now I am on a prescription acne med called Duac.

The spots.. some of them on my forehead look almost like a small rash... very like bumpy.. don't feel like zits. Very red and irritated looking. My forehead is the worst part. They are big red marks that are smooth, they feel like bumps.. in both places that i 'break out' they are always very close together. the skin around them is red too

What are some of the rashes people get from Crohn's??? Let me know if you have ANY idea what this may be.. the dermo i saw didn't have much to say about it.. kind of just a heres some face wash and cream kind of thing...

Thanks a lot!!
