Erythema multiforme is a severe skin response that comes from an infection or another trigger. EM is a type of allergic reaction. People with EM might have family members that have had EM. Besides the skin sores and mouth sores, there might be sores in the eyes, genital areas, lung airways, or digestive tract. Erythema multiforme mostly impacts adults under 40, although it can take place at any age. Lots of people with erythema multiforme will just have a rash, however other symptoms can in some cases occur. The rash: begins as small red places, which may end up being raised patches a few centimetres in dimension; commonly has patches that appear like a target or "bulls-eye", with a dark red centre that may have a sore or crust, bordered by a pale pink ring and a darker outermost ring; might be a little scratchy or awkward; usually fades over 2 to 4 weeks. See your general practitioner as soon as possible if you think you or your child may have erythema multiforme. Your general practitioner might be able to identify it just by looking at the breakout, but they can refer you to a skin specialist if they're not certain.
