Pityriasis rosea

Pityriasis rosea is a common skin disorder characterized by development of a rose (pinkish) colored patch on the trunk known as ‘herald patch’. It follows development of more macula-papular rashes giving a Christmas tree configuration. ,,, Signs and symptoms Herald patch Pityriasis rosea usually begins with development of an oval shaped 2 to 5 cm sized pinkish or reddish rash on abdomen & rarely on armpit or other site, which is raised from skin surface. It is called herald patch. After 7 to 14 days spotted rashes are seen on other areas of body, sometimes giving shape of Christmas tree. Pityriasis rosea Skin lesions are non contagious. Generally lesions are not seen of face, scalp, palm and sole. In 50 to 60 percent cases it is associated with mild to moderate itching. There may be headache, weakness, loss of appetite and flu-like symptoms in some cases. People of colder climate (like European or Russian countries) when come to work in hot humid climate (like Gulf) have more chances of getting Pityariasis rosea. In my personal practice I get more cases of white skined people of countries like Romania, Albania, Russia, Turkey when they come to work at Qatar
