Pseudomonas folliculitis in Child
Clinically, Pseudomonas folliculitis is characterized by tender or pruritic folliculocentric papules preferentially localized to the trunk, buttocks, and extremities. Symptoms typically develop within 1-4 days after exposure to the contaminated water source. Infection can be associated with mild fever, malaise, lymphadenopathy, and leukocytosis. The cutaneous eruption usually fades within 7-14 days without therapy.
Water sources contaminated with Pseudomonas are also associated with outbreaks of painful plantar nodules termed the Pseudomonas hot-foot syndrome. These patients may or may not have a concomitant folliculitis.
There is no geographic distribution of Pseudomonas folliculitis.
