Patient Encounter Part 1

A 25-year-old Caucasian man presents with itchy lesions on his scalp, chest, back, elbows, and knees. He says these lesions started about a month ago, and seem to be spreading. Upon examination, the lesions are well demarcated and are reddish-violet in color—easily distinguished from normal skin. They appeared raised and are covered with loose scales.
