A 43-year-old man with a long history of ankylosing spondylitis had intense pruritus at the application sites of fentanyl transdermal patches used to treat pain of ankylosing spondylitis. To ease the itch, he showered himself with extremely hot water at least 10 times a day for several months. Dermatological examination revealed confluent and reticulate erythematous macules on the chest [Figure 1] and upper arms. Erythema ab igne was diagnosed and he was advised to stop hot showers, following which the lesions improved within few weeks.{Figure 1}
