View Full Version : Skin Problems

Does anyone here have skin problems along with their IBS? I have Tinea Versicolor (little white spots cause by yeast on skin) on my arms and back and IBS. I am otherwise very healthy and have no other medical problems. I was worried that I had some disease or something, but all my tests turned out okay. I had blood tests done and my blood counts were fine. Also, they checked stuff for my immune system and everything was okay. No HIV or anything like that. My doctor said both problems may be caused by a Thyroid and/or intestinal yeast imbalance. I am having my thyroid test results back next week. I have heard of others who have frequent rashes etc. along with IBS. Anyone here in the same boat?
