I suffer from Pyoderma Gangrenosum, so far, I've seen and have been cleared of any gastro inflamatory problems. what else can cause my condition and what else can I do to help prevent future outbreaks I've had this condition for five years and I'm being followed by a dermatalagist. I've heard that autoimmune dissorders may cause this and I'm wondering if seeing a specialist in that area would be a good idea.
