Hi there,

I am Dr. Hoellering and pleased to help you. It may be Pityriasis rosea, a commom skin rash. The cause is unknown, but we know that:

1. Pityriasis rosea is not contagious. 2. Pityriasis rosea clears up in about three to six weeks, sometimes a little longer. When clear, the skin returns to it's normal appearance. There will be no scars. 3. Pityriasis rosea is not related to foods, medicines, or nervous upsets. 4. Pityriasis rosea always disappears by itself. 5. A single scaling spot often appears 1 to 20 days before the general rash. The rash covers mainly the trunk but may spread to the thighs, upper arms, and neck. Pityriasis rosea usually avoids the face, although sometimes a few spots spread to the cheeks. 6. Second attacks of pityriasis rosea are rare.

If you had a picture I would like to have a look at it!
