Erythema Nodosum

What is erythema nodosum?

Erythema nodosum is characterized by tender, red bumps, usually found on the shins. Quite often, erythema nodosum is not a separate disease, but, rather, a sign of some other disease, or of a sensitivity to a drug.

Diseases that can cause erythema nodosum:

    * streptococcal infections
    * sarcoidosis (inflammation of the lymph nodes and other organs)
    * leprosy
    * coccidioidomycosis (infection of the upper respiratory tract and lungs)
    * histoplasmosis (an infectious pulmonary disease)
    * tuberculosis
    * psittacosis (a flu-like disease)
    * lymphogranuloma venereum (a venereal infection)
    * ulcerative colitis

Treatment for erythema nodosum:

Specific treatment for erythema nodosum will be determined by your physician based on:

    * your age, overall health, and medical history
    * extent of the condition
    * your tolerance for specific medications, procedures, or therapies
    * expectations for the course of the condition
    * your opinion or preference
