Scaly erythematous patches following a throat infection

A 6-year-old Hispanic girl was brought by her mother to the dermatology clinic with a two-week history of a scaly rash. According to the mother, two weeks prior to developing the rash, the child had had a throat infection. The rash was mildly pruritic, but the girl was otherwise asymptomatic. Physical examination revealed the presence of numerous 1- to 2-cm erythematous patches with scale located on her face, scalp, chest, back, arms, and legs.
