Abstract

Erythema ab igne (EAI) is a rare condition since the advent of central heating. Its incidence has been rising as heating sources are being used to treat chronic pain. Multiple activities that chronically expose patients to heating sources also have been documented with this condition. We present a case of EAI induced by the use of an electric blanket.
