Drug eruptions (DermNetNZ)

This is a general킠 and comprehensive overview of all types of adverse cutaneous drug reactions (drug exanthems, urticaria, fixed drug eruption, purpura, photosensitivity, pigmentary changes).킠 The learning objectives are to identify and manage drug eruptions. It provides the non-specialist with a good overview but it would perhaps have been useful to describe the most serious type of drug reaction, Toxic epidermal necrolysis 킠(although this can be accessed here). There is little discussion on the킠management of acute drug eruptions.
