Has anyone experienced irritations on their face and the corners of their mouth? I am suspect of everything due to the nature of CD.

Thanks for any help

I totally had irritations on the corners of my mouth. It was almost like chapped lips..but not neccesarily on the lips..more of the corners. My dentist was actually the one whole informed me that it was a vitamin B deficiency, which is totally related to CD. Start taking more vitamin B!
Diagnosed with CD in Jan 07 after going to different doctors for fissures or what I thought were hemmeroids. After getting a colonoscopy they found out I had Crohns. I had no idea what the hell CD was, but once I read up on it, realized I've had mild symptoms since age 12. I'm now 19.
I have mild to moderate CD, and don't have many symptoms other than my 3 fissures, stomach pain after eating, diarreah, bloating, cramping, gastritis on occasion, and then other random health issues that are caused from CD like gingivitis for example.
Just got off of Entocort (too many side effects) and Cipro. I'm now trying the Maker's Diet as well as a bunch of vitamins and probiotics. Let's hope this helps a bit!
This site is great for support.

I was treated with fluconazole twice for these. The first pill didn't do it. They were not fun
10 years, many tests, 3 gi doctors, no diagnosis yet.  Pentasa 1000mg 3x day
