Figure 1.


A 10-year-old boy visited urgent care complaining of multiple skin lesions on the rim of his ear. They had begun as vesicles and some were beginning to crust. He also had enlarged cervical lymph nodes. His mother was concerned because the symptoms developed after an early spring camping trip with his scout troop and two other boys had similar symptoms.
