Erythema Multiforme

Recommended Posts

Recently diagnosed. I have a weird bullseye rash on my arms, legs and torso.  Strange I haven’t had an outbreak.  Dermatologist suspects erythema multiforme, which is caused by the virus.  Anyone have and experience with this? Thanks!!!

I haven't had direct experience with erythema multiforme, but the good news is that it typically resolves on its own. But taking a course of medication like acyclovir can help to heal it up. Have you talked with your doctor about it and are you on medication? Especially since you just got diagnosed, your immune system hasn't gotten herpes under control (usually takes 6-12 months), so taking medication now will help support your immune system at these early stages.
