Yes you do get skin tags with Crohns. One of our members PB4 has had surgery on them and it caused her nothing but problems afterward. I will go in and edit the post title so you will get more responses. I by the way suffer with more constipation than diarhea. To help I use stool softners to make things softer and easier to pass. As for the cold sores, those happen with Crohns too. Good luck!

My Mom had CD so when I started having symptoms at 13 I was pretty sure I knew what I was looking at. But when I went to the doctors, he pretty much told me I was just lactose intolerant. I stopped drinking milk and was not too bad for the next 10 years. Then I had my daughter and had what I thought was the worst 'roids in the world. I was in and out of the doctors office, urgent care and even the ER. Every doctor thought they were hemi's. I was in such pain all the time, I couldn't eat because it meant eventually the food would have to come out. I ended up having laser surgery. At the follow up, my Mom mentioned to the proctologist that she had CD and you could see the light bulb go off over the doctors head. I was diagnosed right then. It wasn't hemi's it was fissures and fistulas. I must have seen 10 doctors, but none of them could put the pieces together because hemi's just made more sense.

Please make sure you go ahead with the testing because it may be the best way to get better faster.

CD 20 years officially, 30 unofficially. 3 resections '93, '95 '97
Managing with strict low residue diet, keeping symptoms to a minimum. All test show small amount of ulceration, still have occasional blockages. But still have a great time with my 2 daughters and husband!

Prednisone, 6MP,Prevacid, B12 shots, Bentyl, Xifaxan.....

My perianal crohn's skin tags were banded (treated as hemiies cuz that's what the stupid docs all thought I had) and they were in a bad flare when they banded them, large and hard and very painful, getting them banded at all was the worst thing I could have had done, since it kept them in a permanant flare (almost 19 yrs ago now) and every doc from then on warned me not to try and get them removed as they would likely never heal, remaining an open wound...
check out this link, first set of pics is of hemmies, pic below that is of perianal crohn's skin tags, even in the link it says they should  not be treated the same as hemmies...maybe get a second, third or fourth opinion.  If I knew then what I learned after I never would have had any surgery on them.

bee propolis caps 500mg one cap twice/day
omegas 369 caps one cap twice/day
probiotics 10 billion cfu once/day
vitamins C-calcium ascorbate (easy on the gut) and vitamin A each once/day
Prodiem fibre supplement one cap before bed
I've also altered my diet (no junky stuff at all, processed, fast-foods, refined sugars, ect) and exercise regularly.
I went from 30+ bloody BM's/day with lots of lower back pain to an average of 5/day no bleeding no back pain and completely formed stools, still have severe urgency issues.
