I was just wondering if anyone has had this before?
Its driving me so crazy that I'm even dreaming about being covered in this rash
A few weeks ago it started so i went 2 the doc and he said it was a fungal thing n gave me cream... well when the cream wasn't working n the rash started spreading i got worried n saw another doc who told me its pityriasis rosea and there is no cure i just gotta watch it spread all over my body! Doctors don't even know why it happens or anything!
I feel so ugly i am so glad its winter so I'm always covered!
Even thou they say i can't do anything about it ill try anything if anyone has a suggestion?
I know there are forums that talk about pregnancy and pityriasis rosacea and many peopel seem to want to know how it seems to affect the fetus/newborn. I'm simply sharing my story.
I received my herald patch about two weeks before conception and the miscarried at ten weeks. It is obviously hard to say if it was the rash, but I'm just putting it out there for those who want to know.
My husband had this a few months or so ago, docs just said, oh it'll go away in due course (which it didn't), so he started taking Piriton every day, and switched to a soap free body wash, and I moisturised him every night (he had it all over his arms, back and chest) This seemed to help clear it up in a matter of weeks. He is now able to use normal body wash, and just has tiny flare up patches every now and again
I had a terrible case of this before I became pregnant, I went to the doctor and he suggested using Head and Shoulders as a 'body wash' as well as a tanning bed for 3-4min every couple of days. The vitamin D seems to be the solution to the itchiness, plus you can get a bangin' tan
Other than that, moisturize with a light lotion and try to stay sane It will eventually disappear
