Erythema multiforme is a skin presentation. This is seen in several conditions such as after taking some drugs, infections and other many other disorders. It is not commonly associated with meningits though and can can occur without a known reason in many cases.

A doctor can look into your condition and perform some tests to see if you have some associated conditions in which it is seen and it cannot be confirmed in all cases.
