I was diagnosed with pityriasis rosea about 5 weeks ago. After use of a steroid cream on some lesions and purely sunlight on others (located on my back). They have now all subsided. However at around week 4 I had a strange bruise like mark arise on my forearm (shown as attached), this differs to the raised flakey lesions i have had elsewhere as its completely flat and looks like a bruise (under the skin). This is very different to the raised scales lesions I saw elsewhere. Just wondering if anyone might know what it might be? I also had athletes foot around 6 weeks ago but that went after around 10 days of applying a cream. See attached photos of the pityriasis rosea rash and the one in my forearm. it is worth noting that sunlight significantly helped the lesions on my back but the one of my forearm has only seemed to get darker. However, it did appear later on than the lesions on my back so it ay be at a different stage.
