Have you heard of Pityriasis Rosea?
Ask Your Own Dermatology Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
I've heard of it but not a lot about it. What should I do about it?
Dermatologist: Dr. Pravin, Dermatologist replied 3 years ago
Thank you for your message.
Your skin sign, photo and the history provided, are all classic of Pityriasis Rosea.This is a harmless , benign rash that may be caused by a virus. It is however not contagious. do not worry as it will resolve over time duration of 2 to 3 weeks.
To help it heal faster:
You should put over the counter cream on the area. The cream is called Cortaid cream to be applied twice a day for 2 weeks.
You should try to get a prescription medication called Erythromycin to be taken twice a day for 7 to 14 days to help reduce the inflammation and the lesions.
This condition is not infectious.
Please do get back to me in case of any further queries.
