The Rosh Reveal: EPISODE 1

Can You Identify the Best Treatment for This Patient’s Pruritus?

January 20, 2019
This is Adam Rosh from RoshCast and I want to welcome you to Ep1 of The Reveal. I will take you inside the mind of a test taker to deconstruct and connect the dots of a board-style question so you can become a better student, transform how you learn, and excel not only on high-stakes exams but also in your general medical knowledge. Let’s get started.

A 14-year-old boy presents complaining of intense pruritus in his groin, axillae, and between his fingers after returning home from summer camp one week ago. He reports several other campers had similar symptoms. On exam, you note excoriations in the inguinal region and axillae surrounding scattered, erythematous papules. Which of the following is the most appropriate treatment?

A) Ketoconazole

B) Lindane

C) Permethrin

D) Prednisone
