So - about a month ago i fell in a boggy wildlife reserve in Cumbria and got wet. About a week later i started with a very small circular red patch on my upper arm that i thought was fungal as have had a similar mark on my face before. Anyway - this grew into a defined circle over 4-5 days and my doctor thought maybe ringworm but canestan for a week had no effect. He changed to hydrocortisone and although the redness has improved - it is still growing. Around 5 days ago i started to come out in itchy red spots - tiny pimples at first that have now turned into flat red slightly dry looking marks with more coming out every day. These are mainly on my stomach and tops of thighs but also on my lower legs and arms etc. My doctor and a pharmacist keep saying allergy or that the two are unconnected and it probably isn't rosea because i am not flushed pink all over. I asked for advice on a mums forum and they have said pityriasis or ringworm. However when my brother had ringworm he got pretty much all the spots straight away whereas i definitely had this increasing circle for several weeks before these other marks appeared so am heading more for pityriasis rosea - does it sound to you experienced people like it is?!
