My Support Groups:
Eczema and psoriasis often flare with active Crohnís disease, but the most common specific dermatological manifestation is erythema nodosum. Usually found at initial presentation, it settles with resolution of bowel inflammation rarely to recur.

Ocular inflammation usually presents as uveitis, episcleritis, or conjunctivitis. Crohnís disease patients developing red eye, eye pain, and/or visual disturbance should receive emergency ophthalmic assessment. Persistently abnormal, particularly cholestatic liver function tests should prompt investigation including magnetic resonance cholangiography for primary sclerosing cholangitis.

Haha...EN rarely reoccurs? I had MULTIPLE bouts of it...over 10 years after initial diagnosis.....harumph.....thankfully since getting things under control I haven't had it since.

30 plus years and counting with UC/Crohn's!
on remicade since 11/05

While my experiences may not be what everyone has had- I feel it is worthwhile to share any and all experiences that may be beneficial to others.
