Erythema ab igne is a hyperpigmented skin lesion caused by prolonged and repeated exposure to a heat source. It is a clinical diagnosis and the treatment consists of avoiding additional exposure to the heat source, with the lesion disappearing over the course of several weeks or months. The main long-term risk if exposure is maintained is the development of malignant skin tumours.
