Question: Erythema multiforme? How does it work, or what are the symptoms?

Answer: there's at least 3 subtypes. EM minor, EM major, TENS/SJS. This condition basically involves skin hypersensitivity. This can be caused by an allergen, medication, and/or bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus). The affected skin will start to redden (sign of inflammation) and have raised lesions called papules. The three subtypes are dependent on how much reaction your body does. Read on the link I submitted below for more details.
