Candidosis, intertriginous: Sharply defined, peripherally scaly erythema and plaques. Frequently pustule fringe or splashes of papulovesicular to pustular satellites in the surroundings. Mycological evidence!
Intertrigo: Mostly obese patients; clinical signs: Bright red, usually sharply defined (satellite foci indicate intertriginous candidiasis or contact allergic eczema), extensive, itchy or painful erosions, spots or erosive plaques and often rhagades. An unpleasant sweetish fetus indicates a bacterial superinfection.
Pemphigus chronicus benignus familiaris: Long-standing finding; more frequent in the intertrigines; familial accumulation. Itchy, reddened, roundish, oval or circulatory plaques covered by greasy scaly crusts, usually sharply defined, with typical transverse fissures (typical sign); often secondary infections (e.g. with Candida).
