Pruritic rash

Case 1:

A 60-year-old laboratory technician complained of a pruritic rash on and around her left ear. It had appeared a few days earlier, shortly after she cleaned her telephone receiver with a disinfectant. A tentative diagnosis of contact dermatitis was made, and treatment with a hydrocortisone cream was initiated.

The patient returned a week later, at which time this photograph was taken. There had been no change in the appearance of the rash.

What other cause might you consider?
