A 61 year-old female patient presented to the office asking for evaluation of a rash that was located on the left breast (Fig. 14.1). She expressed the fact that the condition has existed for approximately 10 months. She explains that the rash has worsened over time, with more inflammation and itchiness, along with development of surrounding red lesions. There was no history of any trauma to that aspect of the breast. The patient was on previous medications for eczema, but articulated the fact that none of the medications had helped her symptoms. She noted no decrease in appetite. The patient has admitted an allergy to sulfa drugs.
