Yes, Pentasa can cause tinnitus. I have it pretty bad. I quit Pentasa this summer to see if it would go away, and it mostly did. I went to see an ENT and he said that this condition is entirely reversible, so my GI put me back on Pentasa. Pentasa has really worked well for me and I am reluctant to move away from it, but the tinnitus has gotten pretty annoying again and I'm going to explore other options at my next GI visit.
Rashes or skin conditions can be part of Crohn's, but I don't know much about that.
