Hi, everyone I have had crohns for 2 years now and I have had this rash on my face that wont go away, It is shaped like a U, under my bottom lip  but above my chin.  It is black and gets worse and better depending on how i am feeling that day.  The doctors gave me bactroban which doesnt work and they told me thats all they have for it.  Just wondering if anyone else has experienced any facial rash of some sort and if they could help me out. Thanks

So sorry that you have to deal with this and I'm sorry but I don't have any answers.
Are they any drugs that you are on that could be causing it as a side affect?
On the FamilyDoctor.Org site there is a chart regarding skin rashes(asks a question-yes/no answer and you work through until it suggests a possible name/cause of it.
Bactroban is generally used for infections and if the condition is not clearing then maybe a second opinion/skin scrape?
May all be worth a look
