i have a weird bruise rash thing on my ankle. It is very hard to touch, feels kind of warm and hurts like a bruise when I touch it.
today I was getting remicade adn showed it to the nurse in case it was an infection. the skin is not broken, but it has been there for over a month. and even before that I could feel it hard under the skin - no redness.
Anyway, she mentioned it might be erythema pyoderma -- and she said this is common in crohns and colitis.
anyone have this? what does it mean? is it related to flare up? I have been flaring for 4 months.
