Abstract:

A 55-year-old female patient presented to our outpatient department with complaints of persistent erythema, oozing and crusting restricted to the left breast over the last 6 months. The patient underwent investigations to rule out the possibility of mammary Paget's disease, all of which were negative. A possibility of contact dermatitis to topical medication was considered and confirmed by patch testing.
