J Pediatr. 1999 Mar;134(3):365-7. doi: 10.1016/s0022-3476(99)70472-5.

Abstract

To determine the anatomic location and offending drug in fixed drug eruptions (FDE) in children, we performed a 5-year retrospective analysis. Thirty-five children with FDE were evaluated. The most common cause of FDE was the combination drug trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole.
