What is Pityriasis Rosea?
Pityriasis rosea is a basic skin rash that usually begins as one large round spot on your chest, abdomen or back. Called a herald patch, this initial spot can be up to 4 inches across. The “herald patch” is characteristically followed by a distinct pattern of smaller spots that appear from the middle of your body in a shape that resembles pine-tree branches.
Pityriasis rosea can affect any age group, but it most commonly occurs between the ages of 10 and 35. It usually goes away on its own within a month to a month and a half. Pityriasis rosea can cause itching, and treatment usually focuses on relieving symptoms.
