Sometimes the content of such bubbles can be completely transparent, this occurs in cases where the patient is suffering from a particular Allergy caused by rare species of plants. Bubble and vesicles between different only in size.

We can say that bubbles and vesicles is one of the most typical symptoms for autoimmune diseases, such as various kinds of dermatitis, herpes and others. The emergence of bubbles and vesicles possibly in the process of various forms of medicinal drug reaction. There are three forms of medicinal drug reaction – Lyell’s syndrome, phototoxic reactions, and preforma exudative erythema.

First form is phototoxic reactions on human skin manifested as sunburn, that is, appear erythema and blisters. These reactions occur in the treatment of the patient to certain types of drugs when adverse reaction occurs. The development of this disease affects not only the type and amount ingested drug, but also the amount of ultraviolet rays.

Second form of medicinal drug reaction – Lyell’s syndrome. In this form bubbles do not appear by themselves, they are distributed to the existing background of erythema. A further step should be the separation of the epidermis which may cause inflammation and lesions of the mucous membranes. Within this form of drug reaction depends on the area of delaminated epidermis. Naturally, the larger the area of stratification, the greater the likelihood of various complications, including sepsis, infections, which increase the possibility of fatal outcome of this disease several times. The most frequently Lyell’s syndrome is acquired in the treatment of some medical drugs. Doctors must be very careful in the diagnosis of Lyell’s syndrome, because the symptoms are very similar to acute reaction that can occur in the human body, recently underwent transplantation.

Third form of medicinal drug reaction – polymorphic exudative erythema. the beginning of this disease manifests itself with the appearance of human skin is dark pink spots that soon turn into pimples. With further development of the disease is in the center of the papules are formed bubbles and vesicles. The rash consists of elements, which upon close examination of the bright rim and dark center. This color scheme gives a rash resemblance to the iris or target in a shooting gallery. The polymorphic exudative erythema, there is one very important diagnostic feature is mišenevidnye items that have already been mentioned. But the diagnosis can be put in their absence. The most common places for the spread of the rash caused by polymorphic exudative erythema is the surface of the mucous membranes, the dorsum of the extremities and other. Might appear bloody crusts on the lips, but they cannot be called a characteristic feature of polymorphic exudative erythema, as they also appear when Lyell’s syndrome – the second form is a medicinal drug reaction. To accompany the rash can typical symptoms of a cold or flu – fever, cough and so on. Usually the rash disappears within three to six weeks, but later relapses of the disease.
