Nonspecific.: This is a very nonspecific picture. It can be seen in many common skin conditions, such as sunburn, eczema, and medication rashes. The fact that the pathologist did not list a diagnosis indicates that the appearance is too nonspecific to pinpoint a cause, so (s)he just described what (s)he saw.
