@alexahercamp Welcome to connect. I see your a new member. So sorry the Dr's are having a difficult time figuring out what is causing your chronic erythema nodosum. It takes several weeks for that to run it's course. Do you have a Car? I was reading this can be caused from being around a cat that has Cat's scratch fever? It can also be caused by GI issues. Maybe ask to see a GI Dr?
I wish you the Best..


@alexahercamp I had EN for years, the only thing that got rid of it was giving up gluten. I dont know if it will help you but that seems to keep mine away.
