Not all, but many: There are several ways that the basis of the condition expresses itself and a sensitive person may experience any combination of them. Skin symptoms are not rare. The good news is that as treatment is effective for one it usually is for others too. Are you well-treated? Is gluten an issue? There are more and more good diets w/out or with minimal gluten. Try one to see if it helps.
