Rash (Pityriasis Rosea) affecting youth BEWARE: What's that on your skin?
Skin rash (Pityriasis Rosea) affecting those in their 20s
Pityriasis Rosea is a common skin problem that causes a rash and occurs most often in those between the ages of 10 and 35. The cause of pityriasis rosea is unknown; however, even though it is a skin condition, it is not an allergic reaction or caused by a fungus or bacteria. This skin rash usually begins as one large circular or oval spot on your chest, abdomen or back, called a herald patch. Before the herald patch appears, some people experience a sore throat or fever. The rash can cause itching which is occasionally severe, but it usually goes away on its own within six weeks.
During those 6 weeks try natural rememdies to ease the itch. Try Selson Blue shampoo to the affected area in the shower, an oatmeal bath, followed by aloe vera when done. Acupressure at the crease of the arm has also been linked to decrease itch. Apply the No Mo Nausea Band to the point stated above to have No Mo Itch.
