Answer

Clinical differential diagnoses include tinea, acne, rosacea, eczematous dermatitis, granuloma faciale, autoimmune annular erythema, infestations, and pustular dermatosis. [33] The hyperimmunoglobulin E syndrome may be first evident as eosinophilic pustular folliculitis. [5]

Histologically, follicular mucinosis, mycosis fungoides, and other cutaneous T-cell lymphomas should be considered. [33, 34]
