Skin on fingers, itches, burns, cracks, have polyp. Done colonoscopy. On cortisone injection. Will I be okay?

I am a female 60 yrs old. The skin on my fingers burn ,itch, crack and peel. I have had this before and it lasted for a few years, then went away. Now it has returned and has been
Present for about 2 months. I also have stool incontenence. A recent colonoscopy was done , no cancer, but 3 polyps were removed. When I asked the Dr, who performed the colonoscopy about this, he said to use "Charmin". I didn't think that was a very good answer to my problem. I also have been treated for a skin condition recently with injections of cortisone and also clobex spray. It is called a stenosis and cannot be cured, but managed. It has settled around a surgery scar on my stomachs. I had a bi-femoral by pass 7 yes ago. Could any of these things be connect ted?

No colon polyp is not connected to other symptoms. There are sometimes syndromic association but those conditions are rare and your symptoms not fit to specific one. Colonic polyp if multiple should be followed up at regular interval . There are syndromes like FAP and other syndromes also. Family history of any colon cancer should be carefully taken. 3 yearly colonoscopy will be a good follow up plan. Consult your gastrosurgeon.
