He says that the rash appears red and is warm to the touch. He denies any recent trauma to his lower extremities. Medical history is significant for ulcerative colitis. Physical examination is notable for bilateral erythematous nodules that are slightly raised. These lesions are warm to the touch and are tender to palpation. (Erythema nodosum)
