I was wondering if anyone else has had other stuff happen with out answers! Any one else stuffer from really dry feet and hands, but really oily face and hair? Also my nails both hands and toes keep pealing or falling off. Like the skin pulls away from the nail and dies. My only way to explain it. I have anxiety and depression, im also border ocd when I stress I pick at them and I will do it till they hurt.. I have tried all kinds of lotions, I have even tried all over the counter and prescribed fungal meds and that hasn't helped either. It seems like the worse my crohn's has gotten the worse my nails get. Please if you deal with this. What do you use on them?

Hello @Brandijo38‍,  thank you for opening this discussion. I'm sorry to hear you've been having some skin issues related to your Crohn's! Let me tag some other members who can possibly share their experience with non-digestive Crohn's symptoms.

Hi everyone, as you all know, beyond the more known digestive problems Crohn's can cause, it can also lead to a number of lesser-known non-digestive symptoms, including: bone and joint issues, migraines, eye infections, and skin conditions. 

Have any of you ever experienced and non-digestive Crohn's symptoms? How did you cope with them? Have you experienced any skin problems like Brandijo38? Can you share any tips or advice?

Feel free to share any experiences or advice here! emoticon cute

Take care,
