If you have had a severe reaction to a drug that has caused your skin to start peeling, you may have toxic epidermal necrolysis – a life-threatening skin disorder.

Because the disease progresses quickly, contact the expert dermatologists at Jefferson who will ensure that you are diagnosed and treated effectively for this condition. One of the many advantages of seeking care at Jefferson is that you may need to be admitted to the Hospital if the burns on your skin are severe. Our dermatologists will coordinate your care at Jefferson Hospital, and there will be no delay in treatment.
