Exceptions are the so-called ' fixed eruption ' (Phenolphthalein) and the more severe type of bromide ' granuloma '. Practically all the others simulate skin reactions met with in daily dermatological practice, and may be papular, urticarial, vesicular, erythematous, nodular, or pustular, or a mixture of two or more o f these. Even bullous reactions may occur, with involvement of the mucous membranes of the mouth or genitalia.
