this may fall under GoodnightJuneBug's post, but has anyone out there experienced an ulcer anywhere other than the mouth or nose? I have (what I thought was an ingrown hair) an ulcer on my leg, by my ankle - its about the size of a quarter, no nodule underneath, but just a large ulcer that leaks. It scabs over, and the surrounding tissue is reddish/blue.
Doesnt hurt, and plaquenil seems to be reducing the size..

Any thoughts/comments/experiences are appreciated!

Yes, I've had the same problem on one leg. I have Raynauds so my lower extremities are very susceptible to ulcers. I use a prescription cortisone cream to clear it up - Betamethasone.
