      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
