Case study A man, 18 years of age, presented with a 6-month history of a widespread itchy rash, more intense at night, which had appeared 1 month after returning from a holiday to the Dominican Republic. The rash initially appeared as white patches affecting the fingers. The patient reported unprotected heterosexual intercourse while on holiday. There was no previous or family history of atopic dermatitis, however, the patient's sister had recently begun to experience similar symptoms. Clinical examination revealed scattered excoriated papules over the trunk (Figure 1), limbs and hands (Figure 2). Intensely itchy nodules were observed on the scrotum (Figure 3). A prolonged course of oral antihistamine in addition to topical corticosteroids did not improve the symptoms.
