Dermatologic problems are common in returning travelers who seek medical care. Some common illnesses such as cellulitis or abscesses occur in travelers but are not unique to this patient group. Additionally, dermatologic illnesses not due to infection such as drug eruptions or phototoxicity are seen. Skin manifestations occur in many tropical illnesses such as dengue, schistosomiasis, and leishmaniasis. This article reviews the common causes of cutaneous illnesses associated with travel including non-infectious causes, infections that are not limited to travelers, and infections that are almost exclusively seen in travelers.
