Ask Your Health Question and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello and thank you for your question,
Are these spots itchy? any other places you have these spots?
Have any of the creams you tried so far shown any effect at all?
Is it possible for you to take a picture and upload it for me to see? Right next to the smiley face there is "an insert image/edit" icon which is used to upload pictures.
Thanks for the picture.
Could you also tell me if the spots are itchy? If you have them on any parts of your body? and if any of the creams you tried so far have helped, even if a little bit?
So how long have you had these spots?
Do you remember the name of the pill you took?
Thank you for your reply.
Just looking at the picture you sent me, I can definitely tell you it is not a fungal infection. Fungal infections have a very different appearance, especially when they involve a large area of the skin. Also, fungal infection would have gotten somewhat better with use of Lamisil cream.
What you have, I believe, is a condition called Pityriasis Rosea. If you google this condition and click on images, you will see similar pictures. Pityriasis Rosea can come on and off and usually lasts from 4-12 weeks. Usually it is described as scaly red patches that mar may not itch. The nice thing is that you actually don't need any treatment for this, it goes away on its own. You can use moisturizers and Hydrocortisone cream if you have a lot of itching. Otherwise, nothing needs to be used.
I hope you find this information helpful. Please feel free to follow-up with any other questions you might have.
