A 6-month-old boy presented with a 30-day history of erythematous, firm plaques involving his face (Figure 1) and the distal aspect of his limbs (Figure 2). Some lesions had a rosette shape and showed central clearing, leaving a yellow-brown hue. There were a few papular lesions on the patient's trunk. His mucous membranes were spared. Ten days before the onset of the eruption, he had presented with acute otitis media that was treated with amoxicillin.
