Inclusion criteria were based on the DRESS scoring system, and those who scored more than four were enrolled. Patients with incomplete medical charts were excluded.

Most ADRs were seen in patients from urban areas (58.57%)  than in rural areas (41.43%). In 82.6% (116 children) of these patients, maculopapular rashes were seen. Phenobarbital and cefalexin had the highest levels of drug reactions, including 55.19% of patients (85 persons) and 11.69% of patients (18 persons), respectively. Pruritus, fever, and scaling were the most common symptoms observed in patients. The most commonly used treatment was antihistamines.
