How long does it take for Erythema multiforme to clear up?

Erythema multiforme

Rash
IT DEPENDS on the cause, and whether or not the cause is diagnosed and treated. If it's a drug side effect and the drug is stopped, it may start to clear up quickly, in a few days. If it's due to a chronic auto inflammatory condition, it could last a long time, or come and go with flares of the illness. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0001854/
