I have not yet been diagnosed but my GP is sure it must be behcets.
Im turning 35 shortly, I have suffered mouth ulcers for as long as I can remember though my skin was generally pretty good. But this last year it has been awful, my forearms being the worst so I now don't wear short sleeves, my whole body had been covered in these big red and yellow sores, and the last few months it has broke out on my face around my nose being the worst. I also suffer joint pains in my back mostly, which for years I had put down to years of physical labour...
I have only started researching this disorder and I must say nothing I have read is filling me with any confidence, I understand there is no cure but is there anyone out there who has seen this condition improved with meds if so could you please share...
I must say I am a very fit individual always have been and I am determined this is not going to get me down.
My doctor had given me a 6 month course of antibiotics for the skin lesions I had been taking them for 2 months or so and my skin cleared up brilliant then I missed my repeat prescription before Christmas and my throat flared up worse than ever with ulcers and my skin was the same... Have any of you had any success with antibiotics???
I'm back on them now but worry that when the course is over will it all hit me harder than ever???
