Have you had your EN biopsied?  The way you describe it, it sounds very much like psoriasis which is triggered by infections and viruses and appears on arms and legs.  I guess I have 'Psoriasis' on my mind lately because I got it as a result of taking Humira, so I could be way off base.  I've had EN also, and they are very different.

Not biopsied as of yet, I have seen many dermatolosts though and they are 99% certain it's EN. Another sign with it, is that the spots turn into big bruises afterwards.

According too my dermatologist. EN can be triggered by lots of weird and wonderful things lol.

Thankyou for your post though, it's always handy too have a knowledge base of other things it might be. It's interesting t know aswell:)
