Answer

Lesions may resolve with postinflammatory pigmentary alteration or with no residual change. Diagnosis can be complicated by dermatitis, because it produces scattered, rounded crusted plaques that resemble those in transient acantholytic dermatosis. Scarring is usually minimal unless induced by excoriation.
