How long does it takes to get completely cured of my disease titled above after full and proper treatment? Please help me getting a reply to it. I am told by doctors that it has developed due to drug reactions and it has been there for four weeks now. Though rashes have gone a lit there is a bit of breathing problems.

  • Ronald, I am sorry to hear you have Erythroderma, yet glad to find another person with this disease! I have searched forever for a forum where I could exchange info with others who have what I do. I've felt I was the only one. I travel to Vanderbilt Dermatology Clinic in Nashville, TN to a dermatologist there. He is a good doctor, but can't promise when I will get well. Please let me know how long you've had this disease, and how you are doing. What meds are you taking for it? Maybe we can help one another from our experiences. Good luck.Violett

  • My 2 yr. old has peeling excessive peeling on his fingers & toes. This is the only thing that comes close to what is looks like. I have not seen anything like this. I have been putting a eczema cream on it. So far does not seem to do anything. I'll call the dr. tomorrow to see what they say. Any suggestions?cyn

  • It sounds like eczema to me, but you need the doctor to diagnose it. The doc should give you a list of things to avoid and tell you what to put on it. Usually they prescribe steroid creams, but a two year old will have his hands in his mouth and that might not be a good solution for him. Good luck. :) Let us know what you find out.
