Q: RASH WITH ODOR--CAN IT BE IBC?

I have a persistent red rash under my left breast that gives off a foul odor, do any of the symptoms of IBC include an odor?

Hi - How persistent is this rash? If it's been around for months, it's probably a skin issue, since IBC would have developed more symptoms by now. I don't believe a foul odor is an IBC symptom; while it can indeed be a symptom of skin rash or infection. At any rate, best to see your doctor about this and get it treated, OK? It sounds uncomfortable! Good luck - PJH
