Id reactions (also known as "Disseminated eczema,"[1] and "Generalized eczema"[1]) present with a variety of infectious disorders, often occurring in response to an inflammatory tinea of the feet, resulting in an eczematous dermatitis.[2]:81

The inflammation is in the absence of a locally visible cause.[3]


Id reactions are frequently unresponsive to corticosteroid therapy, but clear when the focus of infection or infestation is treated.[2]:81
