The erythematous, juicy papules on the dorsum of this 33 year-old woman hands, itch intensely. She was visiting a friend in Tucson, Arizona and noted the itching shortly after she walked her friend's dog. Upon returning home to New York, she sought dermatologic advice because the itching continued unabated; however, no new lesions appeared, and those that originally were present remained limited to her hands and wrists.
