Start by seeing a doctor 1st. Also increase fiber in diet. Maybe lactose intolerant too. Uselactose free diary products.. Possible that you have too much bad bacteria in your stomach and intestine also. Breaking out with a rash. Paper towels can do that, so can your soap and water can be the cause. Again see a doctor for the best advice. I have had Crohn's since my youth and I am 73 now. Have had 2 surgeries and lost 3 ft of small intestine and 6 in of large intestine and the ilio-secal valve inbetween. Wore a iliostomy for a year from 2009 to 2010. Bowel problems were inherited.
