A 35-year-old lady presented with these sometimes painful papules on her upper back and arms. The lesions slowly increased in number. A 7-year-old boy presented with fever and a generalized erythematous rash with pustules. Some pustules broke down to become erosions and peripheral scaling. His scalp was involved but there was no nail change. No medication was taken prior to the skin eruption. Neutrophilia was found on blood count. The pustules were sterile on culture.
