Just wanted to add to this from someone who doesn't have crohn's but get's Erythema Nodosum.
I'm also all bumpy now, which is annoyig and oh so painful. Noone gets it here in the hosp either. They keep saying oh, shall we give you something for your itching. Lol, I just ask for pain killers instead. I've not yet found anything too work, due to the hosp not wanting totry steriods on me just yet.
Te thing that brings me out spotty though, are chest infections, viruses and also scratches.
With scratches, the spots only limit too that area, but with infections I get covered on my legs and arms. Erythema Nodosum also comes out in me, if there is a big change in my muscle enzymes.
Just thought I'd post this, as there are many reasons for erythema nodosum, and it's not always a clear reason as to why they come up or what makes them go away again. For me I've had lots of reasons thrown at me that just haven't been right, including caffiene, meds, triedness, stress. But only a few things have had a regular pattern too them.
