ICD-10 L30.2

Dermatophytids are fungus-free disseminated skin lesions resulting from induced sensitization in patients with ringworm infections.[1]:301

The most common dermatophytid is an inflammation in the hands resulting from a fungus infection of the feet. Dermatophytids normally disappear when the primary ringworm infection is treated.[citation needed]

Dermatophytids may resemble erythema nodosum.[citation needed]
