I have Crohn’s and currently have a ton of mouth sores, which my GI believes is a flare. Anyone else have this happen? My other flares were all gut pain, so this is new.

    Have you ever took the supplement Lysine for it? It helped me before when flaring. Ask your doc before trying it if you do

    What is Lysine? Is it a natural supplement?

  • trish1


    Yeah, you can get the tablets at Walmart or drugstore. It’s an essential amino acid that is found in food.

    Yes one thing I’ve learned after a decade with Crohns is that basically anything weird and seemingly random happening to my body is inflammatory response from disease not being fully under control. Once I broke my thumb carving a pumpkin because of the inflammation in my body.

    Has anyone ever experienced dry skin in connection to Crohn’s. Like Lee, I assume it’s related.
