Pityriasis Rosea

Pityriasis Rosea

Pityriasis Rosea is a skin rash that begins as one large circular or oval spot on the chest, abdomen or back, called a herald patch.

This herald patch progresses into a distinctive pattern of similar but smaller lesions that move out from the middle of your body in a shape that bears resemblance to dropping pine tree branches. Though this condition commonly occurs in the age group of 10-35 years, it can affect any age group. Doctors aren't sure what causes Pityriasis Rosea.
