Dr. Jamie Weisman of Medical Dermatology Specialists in Atlanta GA

Seeing a child’s skin covered in a horrible rash can completely terrify any parent or guardian. Erythema Multiforme is a rash unlike any rash most people have ever seen before. It is a hypersensitive reaction to an infection or medication. Erythema multiforme has a distinct appearance when the rash is starting because the reaction causes red, “bulls-eye” patches or sores on the skin. Often, the skin rash can spread to large areas of the body, even covering the entire back and/or torso. The rash typically begins on the extremities – the feet, legs, arms, and hands – but it can also affect the face, neck, inside of the mouth, and severe cases can affect the entire body. Erythema multiforme usually develops very quickly, which is often very scary to parents especially because most have never heard of this condition.

At Medical Dermatology Specialists, we understand that any skin condition can be a scary ordeal, however, the development of Erythema Multiforme can seem like a nightmare. This rash can last anywhere from two to six weeks. One of the characteristics of Erythema Multiforme is that it develops as a symmetrical rash. So if a child or adult gets the rash on one leg, it will probably develop on the other. The rash can be very itchy and burn, causing children especially extreme discomfort.

Dr. Jamie Weisman offers her expertise, knowledge, and experience to all of her patients. If you or your child has developed Erythema Multiforme it is important to bring him or her into the office as soon as possible to determine the cause and to treat the extreme symptoms that can occur. Dr. Weisman and her entire staff are committed to an individualized approach to treatment of Erythema Multiforme because we understand that no two patients are alike.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.

Dr. Weisman is a great doctor! She was very informative and personally! Her staff were very welcoming as well I'm glad I found her because she is the only doctor who truly explained what was going with me.
Waquele H.
I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
