  • My child has been having outbreaks from Wells since infancy, but nobody knew what was going on. It took a number of years before he was finally diagnosed with Wells syndrome. For the last two years he has taken a low dose steroid every other day. When his outbreaks are really bad his doctors just give him more steroids. The steroids help it not get out of hand like it was before he started the medicine, however I worry about the long term effects. We've tried Griseofulvin in the past, but that did not help at all.
