Anybody ever have this?
 
I have red blotches on my shins...   They are raised up and hurt as if they were bad bruises....   But its not bruised...   just red spots, or blotches I guess....      All up and down my shins...
 
Any ideas?

There is a condition, and for the life of me, I can't remember the name right now that is related to Crohns.  You might want to contact your doctor about this, as I do believe its Crohns related.  Sorry I couldn't be of more help, hopefully someone will be along soon, with the correct name.

Good luck,

Yes, it sounds like it is EN. I had it when I was in a huge flare. I was told that when my gut got under control then it would go away. I was put on 60 mg of pred., and it started to go away. It will take a few months to be completely gone, and boy do they hurt!

Ummm...I am going to suggest using PhotoBucket. I can't really see what folks are talking about when they mention rashes and stuff so why can't we post the link to say, a cell phone pic of the affected area (when appropriate) that's uploaded to photobucket. Also, photobucket is free.
27/f/CD. 4 CD related surgeries: 2 resections, 2 JP drains, 3 NG tubes, many absesses (including the one my most recent surgery scraped off my ovary) and fistulas.
Currently trying to figure out hip and knee joint pain.
Have lost in these surgeries: appendix, 8 in. intestine, R fallopian tube, gallbladder, 10 in. intestine
Crohns Dx'd: February 2008.
Pentasa (and much mental screaming)

Trying to hang in there until January so I'll have some insurance and can visit a rheumy, neuro, GI, primary, pain control, and possibly a shrink so I could stop crying and living in my own lil pity party. :-P
