How to Remove Skin Tag With Nail Polish

Skin tags and Crohn’s disease are closely related. Skin tags are just an abnormal growth of the skin that are usually noncancerous and can be removed easily. Crohn’s disease on the other hand is a type of bowel disease that affects the gastrointestinal tract. This disease can affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract making them get inflamed. Unlike skin tags, Crohn’s disease has a variety of symptoms. These symptoms include; diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal pain as well as weight loss. There are also some obvious signs that may be observed from the external body parts. These are; skin rashes, arthritis, absent mindedness and sometimes an inflammation of the eye.

The causes of Crohn’s disease are quite a number. They are a combination of bacteria, genetics, immunological and environmental factors. In the past, this disease was thought to be autoimmune but recent discoveries show that it is an immune deficiency disease. When it comes to the genetic aspect of acquiring Crohn’s disease, there is a fifty percent chance of a parent transmitting the gene that bears the disease to the children. Chances of the male and female children acquiring the disease are equal. However this condition has been noted to prevail more on people who smoke rather than the ones who don’t smoke.

When we focus on the environmental factors that cause Crohn’s disease, research shows that more people in the developed countries have been diagnosed with Crohn’s disease as compared to a few in the developing countries. This has mainly been attributed to the eating habits. People in the developed countries are said to be eating more of animal and milk protein. The people in the developing countries feed more on vegetable proteins and this is the sole reason as to why there is less prevalence of Crohn’s disease.

When it comes to the immune system, it is thought that weaker immune systems have led to more cases of Crohn’s disease. Ancient studies showed that the human immune system contained parasites that could strengthen the immune system. However increased levels of hygiene in the modern world have led to the elimination of the parasites thus weakening the immune systems.

However, no matter the case, Crohn’s disease is treatable. All you need to do is to consult a doctor incase you have severe stomach upsets or any of the symptoms mentioned earlier in this article.
