Hi Anon

Thank you for your question and I am sorry aboutyour wife's diagnosis.

Behcet's disease is difficult to live with as the sores it causes can make a person miserable.

Because the medications for Behcet's can have side effects, we are not in a position to tell you what your wife should use but anti-inflammatories are generally used to ease inflamation and pain.

Your doctor will design a particular regime for her when he evaluates her properly but I suggest talking to him or her now if your wife needs stronger pain medication.

Also, please take a look at our Behcet's page here where you will get a lot of information on the disease in general but also on the treatments that are available:


Will you let us know how things are going?
