"Figure 5. A "black speck" removed from the skin"

"If the disorder was not chronic, it could easily be mistaken for impetigo or other infective presentations such as staph folliculitis. Persistence for many weeks raises the differential diagnosis of scabies but this can be ruled out if careful observation shows that every wound is persistent and cycling over a 34 week period, and no mites or track marks are found."
