I have Crohn's disease and had erythema nodosum. Can you give me more information about the condition?

Hey there, this is actually my first post/reply. I was diagnosed with Crohns after the borth of my son back in 2007. I have been very lucky since then - with only minor flre ups and one hospitilization for abcess.

I am currently in the heat of worst flare up I've had to date - and am suffering from extremely painflu erythema nodosum predominantly on my thighs and upper legs, but also around my knees and the side of my foot.
I've done some research... but still dont konw a lot.
I do know that it is an inflammatory response, that is located in the fatty layers beneath the skin.

I truly wish remission - and ease of pain - for you, and for everyone in the world who are currently suffering from forms of IBD <3

Be well.
