Differential Diagnosis

History: Miliaria is caused by blockage of the eccrine sweat ducts in conditions of increased heat and humidity.  Miliaria is classified as crystallina, rubra, and profunda according to the level of obstruction of the sweat ducts.  In miliaria rubra, obstruction occurs deeper within the epidermis and results in extremely pruritic erythematous papules.
