Dear Doctors Very good participation from all Dr Chandrakant, Dr Satyajit, Dr Dipti have made an attempt to describe the lesions, this is what I wanted. From all the discussion we had We all can learn that, it's possibility of contact dermatitis, prolonged exposure to Water dirty muddy water and detergents. Secondary infection of candidal intertrigo can be seen. I would have been happy if anyone would have asked for history, occupation and duration of lesions which is very important to arrive at a diagnosis ruling out all the differential diagnosis discussed by all. These are Important in dermatology. She is maid, her work is washing dishes and clothes mainly, gardening. Dr Dipti & Dr Satyajit brought out some out of the box Thinking in aggravating factors and differentials which shows clinical interest.
