You are seeing a 3 year old ill-appearing child with high fever and rash. She initially started with tender erythema in her skin folds, progressing over the next 48 hours to diffuse erythema with flaccid desquamating bullae and yellow crusting around the eyes and mouth. Nikolsky sign is positive. There is no mucous membrane involvement. She was given ibuprofen at home after onset of the fever.
