Nodules around ankle & knee joints - moves, not ringworm
My 11 year old has a skin problem. She gets these weird nodules / bumps around her joint areas. It started on her knee a couple of years ago. It is not ringworm although sometimes it is in the shape of a ring. It has moved over the years and is now near her ankle joint. It is not very painful, but sometimes just a bit sore. What do you think???? Thanks!
I am 26 years old (female) and I have had some of these same symptoms. Right now the nodules are on my knee. Sometimes they are followed by severe arthritis flare-ups and bruising. Erythema nodosum also has occured as well. I have not found anybody that can give me any answers and so I don't have much to offer. I am extremely interested in any info that you have come across, and I wish you and your daughter the best of luck.
