First off, let me say hello to everyone. I am new here and glad I found this place where we all share some of the same problems and no one judges anyone. With that being said, let me get to the point of my thread.I have Crohn's and have had an abscess (drained, but still there) as well as a fistula (still there). I have some problems I'm hoping others have experienced and have found solutions for.First, I have some sort of odor/ soreness in the rectum area that comes after long periods of sitting as well as active activities, such as walking or exercising (and also when I sweat). It is embarassing and debilitating because it prevents me from being active. I'd like to get back into being as active as I once was, but this issue is holding me back. I don't know if it is any sort of drainage from the fistula/ abscess during sitting and activities, or what? Any ideas?Second, I have very foul smelling gas...and gas almost all the time. There really isn't ever a time when I don't have to worry about gas throughout the day. I have noticed some foods tend to do it more, such as dairy or meats, but most others do as well to a lesser extent.I don't know anything formal about anything, so I'm sorry I can't be more specific. I have read some threads around here that would sort of relate, but not sure if my problems are the same. Anyone experience anything that I mentioned here and have any ideas/ solutions?Thanks everyone!
