I got my herald spot two months ago after a breakup. I got a throat infection at first that took two weeks to get over. Then my sister noticed a red spot on my back while we were at the beach which got larger with time and more scaly. Exactly two weeks ago the rash started on my stomach which at first I thought was a heat rash but the rash got worse. I went online and checked out what it could be and thats when I read about PR. A few days later I went to two doctors (can't rely on one only) and they both diagnosed my condition as PR. They said it would take 4 to 8 weeks and that there was nothing I could do. I had read a paper that said that patients diagnosed with PR that received Acylovir (800mg 5 times a day) got over the PR in two weeks in comparison to a placebo group that received vitamin C. Since I am on my way to the Greek Islands next week and I couldn't change my booking I was willing to try anything. I took acyclovir for a week (4 days after the rash started) and started visiting a tanning salon. I been to the salon 4 times and my spot are all dried up but still itch. I also got the bumps on my arms and my neck but they seem to be clearing up and I have to say that they itch the worse. Personally I think the tanning is helping the most and I wouldn't advise anyone to try acyclovir cause it gave me nausea for the whole week that I took it. Defintley try the tanning salon! What really annoyed me was people telling me that \"it's only a rash and it'll go away\" but unless you've had PR I don't think you can really know how it feels. It looks horrid and itches like hell! I was really depressed until I saw it regressing. I hope that I look good in my bikini in a week!
