Description of Lesions

Multiple discrete macular and papulovesicular lesions were scattered on the anterior trunk from both shoulders to umbilicus and from nipple line to nipple line (see Figures 1 & 2). The lesions were on an erythematous base which was warm to the touch. Many lesions with scabs developed secondarily due to the patient's scratching. There was no visible drainage from the lesions and there was no lymphadenopathy.
