Erythema ab igne is an asymptomatic cutaneous condition characterized by reticular, erythematous to violaceous patches on sites of exposure to heat. It is a rare condition but its incidence has been rising as heating sources are being used to treat chronic pain. We report a case of erythema ab igne over the lower back in a 23-year-old girl following the use of heat pads for back ache.
