We have reported a case of severe erythema multiforme caused by outbreaks of recurrent HSV-2 infection. The EM was debilitating and responded to the treatment of HSV with oral acyclovir. On stopping the oral acyclovir, the HSV and the EM both recurred. We recommend a trial of oral acyclovir in cases of severe EM caused by recurrent HSV.
