Picture of Erythema Multiforme 1
Erythema multiforme is an acute, inflammatory skin condition. Multiforme refers to the lesions in the condition having various shapes. An outbreak starts with a reddish macule that turns into a papule. The lesions may resemble urticaria early in the course of the disease. The spots enlarge and become irregularly shaped plaques. Eventually the lesions become concentric reddish circles that resemble targets. The photo depicts plaques of different sizes that have a target-like appearance.
