I had an infection last year that went into lymph nodes in one leg causing pain, redness, and swelling until it opens and scabs over.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I was diagnosed with linear iga bulbous dermatosis 15 years ago. I am susceptible to infection because of the medicine I have to take for it. I got an infection in my leg last year and it seemed to go into the lymph nodes in my leg, causing them to swell, get red and painful, come to a head and burst open. My white count is back to normal, but I still have the problem with the lymph nodes and will occasionally run a fever. I’ve seen dermatologists, disease specialists, and general practitioners, had biopsies done, and also gone to Vanderbilt but no one has been able to figure out what is causing it.
