    An otherwise healthy 8-year-old girl presented to clinic with a 3-week history of a growing red bump on her back. She reported that it bled one time after traumatizing the area.
    On examination, there was a 5-mm bright red papule with a collarette of scale on a background of unremarkable skin. She also had adhesive residua from an adhesive bandage that was kept on top of the lesion.
    She took no oral medications and had no prior treatments to the area. She generally felt well and denied fevers or chills.

    There was no family history of similar appearing lesions.
