Signs and symptoms: She stated that she gets blister-like lesions on especially when on her feet a lot during sports seasons.
Previous Treatment: She had never received treatment for the lesions.
Other information: Review of systems was negative for any malaise, recent illness, shortness of breath, fatigue, weight loss, or weight gain, and positive for hyperhidrosis of the feet. She was otherwise healthy.
