A Case of Pseudochromohidrosis Cured with Oral Erythromycin and Topical Clindamycin
Journal Title:Journal of Dermatology Research
Apocrine chromohidrosis and eccrine pseudochromohidrosis are both rare skin presentations. In case of former patient presents with coloured sweats in apocrine distributions usually axilla, breast etc., while later presents with coloured sweat in eccrine distribution.
Such cases need to be reported after other possibilities with similar presentations have been ruled, and need special mention in literature as mostly they are misdiagnosed as factitious.
Hereby, I am also reporting one such case of pseudochromohidrosis which needed attention as it was causing anxiety to both patient and family members and its proper diagnosis and treatment brought a great relief to them.
