Help on treatment for Erythema Multiforme Major

Posted by @babyur4me, Sep 28, 2018

Can someone offer any help on this disease

REPLY

Hi I had erythema multiforme , and I was admitted to the hospital for a week. But the actual disease lasted for about 3 weeks . I was treated with multiple pain medications, viscous lidocaine , “ magic” mouth wash, anti inflammatory meds, I also got an iv with nutrients and fluids because I couldn’t eat. Multiple times a day they also treated me with gauze and a prescription type water canister to keep my lips clean and on top of the lidocaine they put Vaseline. And for the rest of my body they gave me a lidocaine ointment . I really hope you’re able to get help I know how excruciating and scary this disease can be .

Hello @kmichellewm, welcome to Connect. Thank you for sharing your experience with erythema multiforme. It really helps others know that they are not alone and helps them know what others have done for treatment.

Do you have any other suggestions that helped you get through the day?

@babyur4me Yes it went away after about a month . I’ve had a couple very small episodes since but it did go away . The main thing for me was keeping everything sterile and moisturized . And trying to get as much sleep as possible when I was given pain medicine.

@johnbishop thank you . Yes it was a very traumatic time for me so anything I can do to help others .

The main thing that helped me get through it was keeping my pain under control to help with the stress of the constant pain, sterile water, lidocaine and as much Vaseline as possible on top to keep everything moisturized that helped a lot
