Good morning everyone!


I recently got out of the hospital after a bout with what they tell me was "super infection" due to my UC.


Here's my question. I have had bug bite like sores come up on the back of my hands and a few on my arms. They don't hurt but look just like a bug bite and are getting bigger.


I went to my GI for a follow-up yesterday and he said that it was one of the effects of UC.


Has anyone else had this issue and it so, what can I do about it?  I plan to see a Dermatologist ASAP but I need to know what I am dealing with.  I know that I don't have any other infections because all the blood cultures came back negative.

Yes! I have these same little sores! I didn't know if it was just me, or what. I'm starting (crossing my fingers that nothing will go wrong) to come out of a flare. I only have them on the back of my right hand. I started noticing them about 2 months ago, and they will come and go. They feel a little tender if you mess with them too much. Mine have not gotten bigger, and like I said, they come and go. They're pretty tiny and not noticeable to anyone but me. I find if they are bothering you, a little hydrocortisone cream helps a bit.
Oh the joys of UC!
