Also I have noticed that since I have been in a flare, I have been having dishydrosis pop up in my hands. When I let it go untreated
it tears my hands up pretty good....cracked, raw, flaky skin..........have to use a topical steroid cream to keep it in check.  Anyone else experience this as a side-effect of Crohns?
That is all,
General Colon Bowel
Diagnosed with CD: November 2003
Probably had it long before that.
Currently taking: Not what I asked for.
Cant eat: I can eat anything.
Crohn's Wishlist: I would like a minor resection know...just to see what it's all about and so I can say I had one.

I get dry, cracked skin. My dermatologist said it is a separate issue and not related to my Crohn's. However, it seems to get worse when my Crohn's gets worse. I use a 12% Lactaid lotion. It helps, but does not make all of the symptoms go away.
