AN OVERVIEW OF PITYRIASIS ROSEA
Pityriasis rosea is a skin disease that is common in many persons. The disease develops as a rash on the skin. The rash forms large and very small patches, which Dermatologist London call mother and daughter patches respectively. The rash remains on the skin for a duration of 6 to 8 weeks; sometimes lasting even longer. But the rash disappears in a majority of cases without treatment.
Where this rash is present, it is important to see a dermatologist, as treatment might be needed for the itch that comes later. A doctor’s care is also important for women who develop these rashes in the course of a pregnancy.
