Sweet's syndrome — also known as acute febrile neutrophilic dermatosis — is a skin condition marked by fever and painful skin lesions that appear mainly on your arms, face and neck.
Hello, I've attached a succinct diagnosis from MayoClinic that I hope is helpful. Sweets's syndrome often occurs in conjunction with a malignancy or other inflammatory condition and responds to its primary treatment. Sweet's is not "dangerous for" cancer, but can happen with it.
It is treated #1 by treating the underlying condition. It may also respond to steroids.
Sweet's IS a vasculitis.
It is a specific type.
I do not think you were MISdiagnosed.
Steroids do not predispose to cancer.
