Some medicines such as penicillin are used to fight infection and are also responsible for this condition. Medicines such as antipsychotics are used to treat mental illness and are also responsible for the same.
  • The disorder may also be caused by infections such as herpes, HIV, Hepatitis and pneumonia as well.
  • A weakened immune system may also pose a person at high risk of developing this problem. Even a person having a family history of this same disorder may also at risk of this problem.
