Sorry this post is a little gross, but I want to be descriptive to see if anyone else experiences the same issue.
Ever since my diagnosis with CD (2003) I have had consistent acne on my scalp. Or what appears to be acne. These zits seem to arise very fast and are often filled with a clear liquid (or clear fluid with a slight yellow tint). They can range from small pimples (bb size) to large (quarter-size). Sometimes they are filled with a more whitish pimple-like puss. The distinctive feature however seems to be the speed with which they come on. I may notice a tiny one on the back of my head, and if I scratch at it, it can swell to a massive (again, quarter-size) lump within a matter of minutes. Sometimes they are not popable, sometimes they are.
Finally, I will note, they seem to be better when my gut is in a flare, and worse when it is not! so strange.
1) what the hell is this?
2) what can I do about it?
Obviously I know I should see a dermatologist. I am looking to hear what others have done (if there are others) who have experienced something similar.
