I agree with Navy,
I use to have this same problem all the time.I keep a bar of good ole' Dial soap (the yellow kind) in my shower specifically for washing the area down below. This seems to keep most of them away, but if I do feel something showing up, I start using acne medication. It may still pop thru, but I havn't had a really bad one in ages...
My Dr. recommended this after I started getting absesses in the Bartholin's gland. He said that normally this area is self cleaning for the most part, but with all the other stuff us crohnies go thru, good ol soap and water wouldn't hurt. Just make sure you rinse well.
Dx'd w/ Crohn's in 1979 at age 13. Bad flare 2008 but no health insurance so I dealt with it. Colonoscopy in July 2009 caused a perforated colon, emergency bowel resection. 2 fistula's, perianal and perivaginal.
Humira, probiotic, a multivitamin, calcium, magnesium, zinc, and fish oil. I also take Tramadol 50 mg and Klonopin (for anxiety) as needed.
Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance!
