Hello! I am so happy to have found this website and to know others are suffering from PR. I am 28 year old female from the US and have had PR for about 13 days now and am miserable. I was first thought to have dermatitis and was put on steroids for 9 days. I had about ten red oval spots on my torso and back which seemed to dry up after a few days so I thought it was gone. Then a few days later I broke out in thousands of red tiny marks that are every where from my neck to my thighs. Every time I think it is getting better I see new spots somewhere else on my body. It is so discouraging and itchy and I cannot wait for it to go away.
I was finally diagnosed with PR and was told there isn't much I can do . I have been bathing with head and shoulders every day and taking bendadryl and vitamins. My doctor also put me on erythromycin for two weeks but I honestly think it is doing nothing. I am going away on vacation in one month from today and am just praying that my PR will at least fade slightly before then. I have heard that going tanning helps which I have not tried yet. I am very fair skinned so I am concerned it will make it worse.
Has any who is very fair skinned gone tanning and saw good results? I am determined to try it but was wondering if tanning has actually made it worse for anyone? Any advice is appreciated..I am already so sick of dealing with this
