Erythrokeratodermia variabilis et progressiva is a skin condition characterized by well-defined round or oval red scaly patches that may join together to form map-like patterns. Some patches are fixed, occurring most often on the outer surfaces of the arms and legs, while others are migratory - lasting for hours to days and then fading or moving to another location. Some skin lesions are accompanied by burning or itching sensations. Common triggers include emotional stress, temperature changes, mechanical friction and hot or cold weather. Skin lesions often occur during the fist year of life, gradually progress during childhood, and then stabilize during puberty. Treatment is aimed at alleviating symptoms and may include topical retinoids or antihistamines.
