An inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), causes ulcers to form in the gastrointestinal tract anywhere from the mouth to the anus. Symptoms include stomach cramps and pain that comes and goes, diarrhea, and blood in your stool. Other symptoms include losing weight, feeling sick to your stomach, having joint pain and feeling tired. Some people who have Crohn's disease have severe symptoms, while others have less severe symptoms. Some people who have Crohn's disease have long periods without symptoms, even without getting treatment. Others with more severe disease will need long-term treatment or even surgery.
Crohn's disease is sometimes called regional enteritis or ileitis. It and a similar condition called ulcerative colitis are referred to together as inflammatory bowel diseases. These illnesses are known for their unpredictable flares and remissions.
The use of a bidet is of great relief for people who suffer from Crohn's disease, as well as many other diseases, because with the use of water, the need for irritating paper is reduced significantly.
