Bowel-associated dermatosis-arthritis syndrome
Bowel-associated dermatosis-arthritis syndrome (BADAS) is a group of rare diseases characterized by chills, fever, and flu-like symptoms with skin ruptures. It derives as a complication from IBD and intestinal bypass surgery. In fact, several doctors believe that BADAS may occur as a result of accumulated bacteria that triggers inflammation.
BADAS causes small and painful skin lesions that are typically found on the arms and upper chest. While they usually go away on their own, they can recur if UC flare-ups are persistent. Treatment options for BADAS generally include the use of antibiotics and corticosteroids.
