A 13 year boy was brought to me by his mother today with this unilateral eczematous and infected lesion over the shin. I came to the following conclusion after a detailed history. He developed a minor asteatotic eczema patch which was entusiastically treated by his parents with a herbal paste which led to this. When I offered the diagnosis the mother promptly agreed though she blamed her husband for it :-). The boy said that he developed intense itching after applying the paste.
