I decided to make a new post rather than change the direction of the last one.
 
I am curious about these skin tags.  When are they considered "normal" (i.e. old hemmorhoid tissue) and when are they evidence of CD?  I once asked about this and the gyn NP said it was an "old hemmorhoid" probably from pregnancy.   I'm wondering if she was wrong.  When I am not feeling very well systemically (even though I have little actual gut pain) such as fatigue, malaise, that area of my body just doesn't feel right. I can't explain it, it just feels strange, I am more aware of it which I normally don't think about.

Here's a link so you can read and see pics of actual hemherroieds and actual perianal crohns skin tags (aka: elephant ears)...

Thanks, pb4. Mine don't look like the first one but nowhere near as bad as the second. I'm having a hard time deciding which end is up, down, back front? Ugh.

The first one is hemmies, the second one is the perianal crohns skin tags, my skin tags are worse (bigger) then the ones pictured in the link.

Get your GI to check them out, he may even send you to a colon and rectom specialist since they're even more advanced with knowledge about the anus.
