Herpes Simplex Virus as a Cause of Allergic Mucocutaneous Reactions (Ectodermosis Erosiva Pluriorificialis, Stevens–Johnson's Syndrome, Etc.) and Generalized Infection

Skin keratinocytes represent a primary entry site for herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1) in vivo. Management of genital herpes in men with 0.5% Aloe vera extract in a hydrophilic cream: a placebo-controlled double-blind study. Mucocutaneous involvement is seen in only 57% to 70% of patients and the clinical aspects of the lesions may sometimes be misleading. 1997;8:99-102. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute, Tampa, Fla. Aloe vera estract 0.5% in ahydrophilic cream versus Aloe vera gel for the management of genital herpes in males. These type-specific regions have been used to develop serologic assays that distinguish between the two viral subtypes.

Here we offer an observational approach to host/parasite relationships, based on clinical features of PID patients. 1996;7:294-295. In many people, the virus is periodically reactivated, causing cold sores that invariably erupt in the same site (usually around the lips). It is remarkable that in two earlier published cases in adults the eruption was interpreted as variola. Allergic cutaneous and mucous manifestations may thus occur in acute herpes infections. This should support the view that eruptions of an allergic nature may follow after recurrent herpes affections. There is a history of cephalea and skin rash as well.

Major RAS usually appears on the lips, soft palate, and throat and tends to heal with scarring.
