I would be interested to know how many patients have been given the wrong medical treatment for their Sweet's syndrome. The situation has improved a lot in the past 5 years, but some patients are still being given the wrong treatment, particularly antibiotics (tetracyclines, or antibiotics to treat infection are the exception).
Wrong treatments can include:
- Antibiotics, particularly repeat antibiotic therapies.
- Wound debridement (the removal of affected tissue). This is done by applying certain gels, solutions etc. to skin lesions, or the tissue is surgically removed.
- UV light therapies.
