Patient Comments: Erythema Nodosum - Symptoms

What symptoms did you experience with your erythema nodosum?

Comment from: dee, 45-54 Female Published: May 28

I have experienced EN since approximately 1983-'84. As everyone says, it is extremely painful and takes time to go away. Over the years, I have tried to take notice as to what has happened and what's going on. It seems my EN breakouts occur when I'm exhausted, stressed, and very nervous. It frustrates me greatly that I can't control it. At this time, I have the worst breakout I've ever had. I enjoy outdoor activities and EN limits me greatly to the things I can do because of its appearance.
