I have been diagnosed with a skin condition called erythema multiform. I develop a rash that in places blisters. The base is very red and the rash varies in size . It is on my arms and legs mostly. The rash has reoccurred a number of times. It takes 4-6 weeks to go away.The dermatologist says it is the above and put me on prednisone to help clear it up and a low dose of Acyclovir to hopefully keep it at bay. The rash seems at times to be related to something I get exposed to outside. I mow or work in the garden and if my body is not totally covered 2-3 days later the rash appears.
The dermatologist says it is often related to the herpes virus and this could be as well I guess, but it has come about more than once after work outside.
It is sooooo discouraging. Am just wondering if any one else has such an issue or if anyone was comments or suggestions.
