Case 1

A 65-year-old man presents to the clinic with a large rash on his torso. On physical examination, the patient has multiple scaly erythematous patches on his chest and abdomen. When asked about the history of the rash, the patient mentions that he has had “on and off rashes around this region for several years,” and thought the rash was the result of an allergic reaction “to fabrics or washing detergents.” The patient reports that he has tried a number of topical creams to treat the rash, but none has helped his symptoms, and the “rashes would eventually resolve by themselves.”
