Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Birth control. She has had blood work done on three occasions the most recent being yesterday hence I do not know the results of that. The previous blood test come back normal although I don’t know specifically what they’re looking for. It was also given a 24 hour urine specimen collection jug yesterday; hasn’t started that yet.

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
None that we know of.
Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 6 months ago

Ok. this is what it appears to be to me

something like erythema nodosum

I think she should get off the birth control

that could be the issue

and a full autoimmune blood work

labs: ANA, CRP, sed rate, rheumatoid factor, CCP

is this helpful?

First pic 9/30, second one taken 12/2.
Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 6 months ago

No doubt. I see it.

This should be worked up right away and stop the birth control

use backup contraception if needed
