Erythema marginatum

Erythema marginatum is an erythematous eruption that may be associated with Still's disease and rheumatic fever.
Typically slightly raised annular lesions, pale pink in color, appear to wax and wane in their intensity, being more obvious in late afternoon.

Treatment:

  • Lesions themselves usually fade in 2-3 days.
  • The eruption is self-limited.
