A 32 year old female developed a disseminated bullous fixed drug eruption following the use of pseudoephedrine. She had two prior episodes of non-bullous fixed drug eruptions following the use of the herbal weight loss formulation, Metabolife, and the diet aid, Dexatrim, both of which contain sympathomimetic ingredients. Bullous fixed drug eruptions and non-pigmenting fixed drug eruptions due to sympathomimetics are discussed.
