Saroid seems to be everywhere

I am pretty on top of this disease but now to my amazement have been told that sarcoid can make any scars you have become raised- I say oh great its on my face - this was per my dermo man who is knowledged with sarcoid- I went bc I was have an weird episode of erythema nodosum on my legs- he did a punch biopsy and until results come in wants to treat as EN if somethng else its the sarcoid in liver in kidneys- its already affected lungs and eyes...by no means am I looking for pity but I am wondering has this happened to anyone else??? Thanks

Hi Steph, yea ole sarc can raise scars. I found out after my surgery it raised one of my surgical cuts but left the other three unaffected. Good luck with your treatment and be sure to stay on top of your sarc as best as you can.

Sarcoidosis and the Body
Sarcoidosis is a "multiorgan" disease - meaning it almost always involves more than one organ. It's unpredictable and affects different people in different ways.

You can learn about the ways in which sarcoidosis affects the body in FSR's Sarcoidosis and the Body brochure.
