Hot tub folliculitis or hot hand-foot syndrome caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa.

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a ubiquitous gram-negative rod that can cause a well-recognized, acquired skin infection from bacterial colonization of contaminated water called "hot tub folliculitis." We report an outbreak of pseudomonas skin infection associated with the use of a hot tub at a pool party in 33 children. In particular, 2 of the children were admitted to our hospital; both presented with high leukocyte counts, intermittent low grade fevers, and painful, erythematous nodules and papules on their palms and soles. One of the 2 children also presented with small erythematous pustular lesions on the face and trunk, which led to the diagnosis. Cultures from these pustules grew P aeruginosa. Thirty two other children at this pool/hot tub party developed similar lesions of varying severity 6 to 48 hours after the party. These findings were most consistent with the diagnosis of pseudomonas folliculitis/hot hand.
