A 5-year-old boy presented with a lesion on his left cheek. It began a week earlier as a small erythematous macule that later became excoriated and had been enlarging. The originally mildly pruritic lesion had become tender.
Past health unremarkable. No personal or family history of skin problems.
An erythematous, eroded plaque was observed on the left cheek. A yellow-brown “stuck-on” crust covered the superficial erosion. Remaining examination findings normal.
