Make the Diagnosis: Woodland Walk Goes Wrong

(MedPage Today) — A 28-year-old woman visiting friends in Connecticut went to urgent care with multiple skin lesions on her legs after taking a stroll in the woods the previous morning. She said that first her skin felt like it was burning, then painful erythematous lesions appeared, and then vesicles had formed. They had walked through a field of pretty wildflowers to take photos on the nice sunny day, but otherwise had stayed on the trail. The patient was certain she hadn’t come in contact with any poison ivy because she had been on the lookout for it.
