A suspected case of codeine-induced erythema multiforme.

Erythema multiforme usually presents as an acute inflammatory reaction involving the skin and mucous membranes. Systemic symptoms and organ involvement also can occur. The disease is associated with many illnesses and drugs. A two-year-old child presented to the Family Practice Center with a probable codeine-induced episode of erythema multiforme. The patient had been treated with Actifed-C Expectorant for a suspected viral upper respiratory tract infection. The rash was characteristic of erythema multiforme, but there was no involvement of mucous membranes. The rash quickly abated after the discontinuation of the drug and the administration of hydroxyzine. A viral cause for the rash could not be ruled out. When erythema multiforme is precipitated by a particular drug, discontinuation of the offending agent is necessary. The rash should disappear quickly. Adjunctive use of antihistamines may offer some benefit for the patient. Systemic corticosteroids may be necessary for more severe cases.
