61 yrs old - diagnosed with Crohn's disease at 13. Ostomy 13 years ago. Erythema nodosum extreme on left leg. . . Very painful. Several years now.
Prednisone: This is a tough problem. The only thing that is going to really help with erythema nodosum is prednisone. I suspect you have been on Prednisone on and off for years and were hoping the ostomy would decrease the need for it. See a dermatologist who can collaborate with your GI doc. You are still having inflammation and i assume you are on other systemic medications. ...Read more
I suffer from granuloma annulare, erythema annulare centrifugum, erythema nodosum, and low IgM. Are these related or might they have a common cause?

I was recently diagnosed with Erythema Nodosum. My lab results showed my WBC is 11.1, SED rate is 41, and CRP is 14.4. Should I be concerned?!
No: Treat the person, not the lab values. These are trivial, and hopefully you already know that reference ranges are set so that several percent of healthies fall outside on either end. Of course something's inflamed when you have E-N, but you'll probably never find out what and most often it resolves. Let the workup continue, keep up with healthy lifestyle stuff, and plan to live a long & happy life ...Read more
