MAIN DIAGNOSIS:

Contact Dermatitis (ICD-10 Code- 9)

Skin inflammation known as contact dermatitis, caused by exposure to allergens or irritants, presents with pruritus, erythematous rash, vesicles, and burning sensation. Considering the patient’s recent activities, contact with hazardous plants during hiking may have caused poison ivy dermatitis. The main diagnosis is contact dermatitis.

DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSES:

  1. Folliculitis:
    • Infection of hair follicles causing pustules on an erythematous base.
    • Unlikely as the rash is not body-wide and consistent with hot tub folliculitis.
  2. Urticaria:
    • Sudden, widespread eruption of wheals with itching.
    • Possible, but vesicles and erythematous base differ from typical urticaria.
  3. Pruritus:
    • Characterized by itching with or without a rash.
    • Inadequate as the patient presents with vesicles and pinpointed causes.

PLAN:

  • Advise avoiding identified allergens.
  • Prescribe topical corticosteroids for symptomatic relief.
  • Educate on preventive measures.
  • Follow up to monitor improvement.
