In brief: Rash

It is a scaly and itchy rash.
There may be oozing blisters. There is often skin color change (lighter or darker) and if it has been around a while and the patient has scratched it, the skin can become leather-like. It is most common in infants and can be associated with asthma and/or hay fever.
