Answer

The goal is to adequately treat the underlying infection or dermatitis, which should lead to prompt resolution of the id reaction. Recurrences are common, especially if the primary source is not treated adequately.

Treatment of the eruption includes the following:

  • Systemic or topical corticosteroids

  • Wet compresses

  • Systemic or topical antihistamines
