In brief: See details

This is a very rare but very serious and even life threatening disorder of the skin and mucous membranes.
It is usually a reaction to a medication or an infection. It usually begins with flu-like symptoms followed by a painful rash in which the top layer of the skin dies and sheds. It is an extreme emergency and requires immediate hospitalization.
