This 36-year-old Chinese man presented with recurrent crops of slightly itchy spots over limbs for one year. Individual lesion resolved with crusting and subsequent post-inflammatory pigmentation. He was otherwise healthy and was not on any long term medication. Physical examination showed lesions mainly on limbs in various stages of evolution: discrete erythematous papules, pustules, crusting, desquamation, and post-inflammatory pigmentation (Figure 1). There was no lymphadenopathy or hepatosplenomegaly.
