Autoimmune Progesterone Dermatitis

definition

Cyclic cutaneous eruptions occurring during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle, with some oral contraceptives and exacerbated by pregnancy. Manifestations range from urticaria to erythema multiforme-like lesions to dermatitis to frank anaphylaxis. Intradermal challenge with progesterone produces a wheal and flare and often reproduces the original symptoms.
