Rash follow-up

Here’s a great tip from one of our PEM fellow’s recent lectures. When a patient has cellulitis that’s being treated as an outpatient, we often outline the area of erythema with a pen so the parent can know if the cellulitis spreads further. Another tip to follow the progression of rashes in general is to ask the parent to take a photo with their smart phone and bring it to the follow-up PMD or ED visit.
