A healthy 28-year-old woman presented to the family medicine clinic with a worsening, intensely pruritic rash on her flank that had elongated over the past month. She had presented to the office 1 month previously, at the onset of the rash, 7 days after returning from Thailand, where she had sunbathed directly on the sand in a 2-piece swimsuit. She had received a diagnosis of tinea corporis. Clotrimazole was prescribed but provided no relief. Physical examination at the current presentation revealed an erythematous, raised, indurated, serpiginous rash (image) consistent with cutaneous larva migrans. The patient was treated with a 3-day course of albendazole, and the rash resolved.
