Exfoliating Dermatitis. Presented by DR FORDYCE

* * *  

DR. J22ACKSON said that he had seen several cases of this kind of exfoliating erythema. In this connection he would report a very intense exfoliating dermatitis following the use of blue ointment. The patient was told by some of his friends that an itching he had about the pubes was due to crab lice and that blue ointment was good for it. So he bought a lot of the unguent and smeared his whole skin several times with it. This set up an intense dermatitis so that he had to go to bed. When he came to Dr. Jackson his whole skin was intensely red, and the palms of his hands were peeling off like a glove. It was a remarkable effect of a good ointment used in a wrong way.
