Two years ago, following roentgen therapy to the palms, the eruption spread to the arms, legs and feet. When first seen, seven months ago, she had scattered papules on the neck and arms. There was maceration on and between the toes.At present, there is dermatitis of the face, eyelids and neck. There is mild dermatitis of the arms and hands, which she keeps covered with a paste of zinc oxide and starch. The feet are free from maceration between the toes.
