Abstract

We present the case of two sisters who came to the pediatric consultation for papulopustular skin lesions without other symptoms, but a history of being bathed in a public swimming pool and a spa the previous days. Pseudomonas folliculitis is a skin infection of the hair follicles caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa that is commonly suffered by people who baths in hot tubs, saunas, swimming pools, fountains and physiotherapeutic pools. It is a self-limited infection that resolves without any residual lesion.
