Unlikely: These 3 conditions have 3 different auto-sensitivity targets, in the skin. Biopsy appearance is different under the microscope, and treatments are different. The first 2 conditions usually respond poorly to any cream, but are not serious. E. Nodosum can be a sign of a more serious underlying disease, and stronger meds are needed. Please see a Dermatologist for treatment.
