Does anyone out there have problems with erythema nodosum or pyoderma gangrenosum?
I was diagnosed with Crohn's in "88 and had two bowel resections in "89 and "94. Since then I was in remission for a while but then started to develop problems with red bumps on my shins, then they would go away but then after a while those red bumps would turn into pyoderma gangrenosum, which is frankly, the most horrible condition, in which, I would develop actual holes in my shins that would feel like my skin was being eaten alive! My GI tried different meds and then suggested Remicade. OMG! My miracle drug! It could clear up my problem and then when I would start getting another spot, I would get Remicade and it would heal it! They told me it was a manifestation of Crohn's disease. I have many more details but was just wondering if there was anyone else with this prob before I get into all that.
