The lesions usually appear in the hands, feet, extremities, and face. Symptoms include fever, malaise, sore throat, cough, vomiting, diarrhea, arthralgia, and myalgia. Causes include infections (most commonly herpes simplex virus), drugs (e.G., sulfonamides, anticonvulsants, and antibiotics), malignancies, and collagen vascular disorders.
