Erythroderma

Erythroderma is a term, which is used to describe severe and widespread, that is throughout reddening of the skin due to inflammatory skin disease.

It is generally associated with exfoliation, that is the skin peeling off in scales or layers and then it is known as Exfoliative dermatitis. Clinicians find out the cause of

Exfoliative dermatitis by knowing the history of illness just before the erythema and scaling and by doing bioposies and performing blood studies. It is also sometimes called, red man syndrome.

It is that in, which no primary cause can be found, inspite of serial examinations and tests. Idiopathic exfoliative dermatitis is characterized by marked palmoplantar keratoderma and a raised level of serum imunoglobulin E (IgE).

Clinical features of Erythroderma

It is characterized by generalized skin redness and swelling. Serous ooze, results in clothes and dressings, sticking to the skin and an unpleasant smell. Scaling occurs 2-6 days after the onset of erythema and appears as fine flakes or large sheets.

Thick scaling may develop on scalp with varying degrees of hair loss including complete baldness. Thickening of palms hands and soles of feet may occur. Abnormal temperature control results in fever and chills.

Electrolyte abnormalities and dehydration occurs because of fluid loss through the skin. Low serum albumin level occurs because of protein loss and increased metabolic rate. Secondary infection may occur with pustules and crusting. There may be swollen lymph nodes, that is lymphodenopathy.
