Patient #1 was a 12 year old boy who presented with a 3 day history of a pruritic rash on the lips and perioral area which was so uncomfortable it was difficult for him to open his mouth.  He had a history of severe sensitivity to poison ivy, but no recent history of outdoor plant exposure.  The rash responded to use of class 1 topical corticosteroids for several days followed by tapering.
