I have suffered extraintestinal Crohn s disease since the early 1990 s - I m 61 years old. I had to quit my job with Chevron Corporation when my symptoms became out-of-control. I have another case of pyoderma gangrenosum and again; the Doctors give me blank stares when I seek help. I ve taken care of many outbreaks of pyoderma gangrenosum with the help of a General Practioner (locally) and he would prescribe medication based on the research I presented him. My present Family Doctor (30 year NAVY ret.) referred me (for my first visit) to a Retired Navy Dermatologist (20 year man). Location is Pensacola, FL. My present ulcer has grown over the past two years and I am having a Big Problem in just Covering the lesion with the best protection I can apply to my ulcer after being cleansed. All I ask for is a coverage that will give me 12 hours of sleep. I could cope with it in the morning. Got any suggestions? Not an easy case, for sure! jeff

son has crohns with many extraintestinal manifistations including LCV and HsP among others. He presented with up to 30-40 RBC and 2+ protein a year ago b4 being systemically treated with methotrexate, remicade and steroids, in the hope that the inflammation would exit his kidneys and calm down in his intestinal tract.
Joinnt pain, nausea, fatigue, psoriasis type head sores and ocaissional bouts with LCV and pyoderma have plague him for years. a well meaning nephroglogist told us the Kidneys would just "go" and we needed to keep an eye on them. It's been over a year he has enjoyed good health and I am worred that the recurrence of even a small amount of blood in his urnalysis could be his disease preciptating out in his kidneys
