What Caused These Nonresponsive Pruritic, Erythematous, Scaly Patches and Plaques?

A 22-year-old female equestrian with a history of atopic dermatitis presented with mild to moderate pruritic, erythematous patches on her face (Figure 1), upper back, and fingers (Figure 2). Prior to this initial office visit, treatment with a “ringworm ointment” was unsuccessful.

Scalp lesions were not noted.
