Milker's nodule is caused by a cylindrical parapoxvirus that is most commonly endemic in cattle. It affects those in close contact with animals harboring the virus. We report a 30-year-old female, milkmaid who presented with painful raised lesions over the right hand of 8-day duration. No lymphadenopathy was noted. Skin biopsy revealed epidermal hyperkeratosis, parakeratosis, and acanthosis with dense inflammatory infiltrate in the papillary dermis. The patient was treated with a course of antibiotics for the secondary infection, as there was no specific treatment for the same.
