A healthy 23-year-old Chinese man presented with a 3-month history of pruritic, erythematous rashes on his right leg. He had undergone intensive army field training exercises 2 months before the onset of his rash, although he could not recall sustaining any injury during the session. His lesions got worse despite 3 weeks of treatment with 0.05% betamethasone dipropionate ointment and potassium permanganate wash, followed by 2 weeks of treatment with miconazole cream. There was no personal or family history of atopy.
