Erythema ab igne: A case report

2018 IP Indian Journal of Clinical and Experimental Dermatology  
Erythema ab igne is an asymptomatic cutaneous condition characterized by reticular, erythematous to violaceous patches on sites of exposure to heat. It is a rare condition but its incidence has been rising as heating sources are being used to treat chronic pain. We report a case of erythema ab igne over the lower back in a 23-year-old girl following the use of heat pads for back ache.
