Dermatophytids (id or ide[1]) are fungus-free disseminated skin lesions resulting from induced sensitization in patients with ringworm infections.[2]: 301 

The most common dermatophytid is an inflammation in the hands resulting from a fungus infection of the feet. Dermatophytids normally disappear when the primary ringworm infection is treated.[citation needed]Dermatophytids may resemble erythema nodosum.[citation needed]
