Deep Breath and....OK I cantype this.
Is it my age (nearing mid 40) or the CD that has hair starting near the worst spot for my perianally focused CD?  I am a strawberry blond with pale skin who has never plucked an eyebrow and could get away without shaving my legs and no one would see it.  I'm not liking this hair thing.
Seriously, it seemed to show up at the same time my tushy was getting more irritated in that area.  It's not much, but I am thinking it could be causing some of the irritation on what used to be bay soft skin.
Any ideas any accepting this or ways to stop it???
Dx'd '90 (emergency rupture), symptoms ignored long before that, '03 fistulas and bad flagyl reactions, B12 weekly, Pentasa [until I surrender to the bigger meds]
I'm riding on the escalator of life....

A simple solution:

1. Light bonfire

2. Drop drawers

3. Back up slowly until you hear them go fffftttt

4. Stifle loud yells and dive in the lake

Seriously, as I have learned with ear and nasal sprouting, unwanted hairs do pop up in odd places as we get a bit older. Maybe there is some gentle depilatory cream you could use? Might check with a dermatologist.

LOL at mikeB i dont recommend doing this; it seems more then a little painful; stick to the traditional methods: shave/wax/nair/laser (if your into that) fire and skin dont get along

Have you used rectal steroids or steroid creams? If steroids can cause unwanted facial hair I would guess it could cause unwanted hair in other places too.
