My Pityriasis Rosea started with a small red patch under my arm. I thought my skin was rubbing on my sports bra since I had just started working out again, so I thought nothing of it. Two weeks later I broke out with the rash. It started with small bumps that looked like an allergic reaction but after a day it was all over my body, from my neck down to the groin. Of course I researched like crazy and tried all the remedies. Head and shoulders helped to dry it out, but then I had to keep applying thick cream to sooth it after. My cousin has eczema so she gave me a cream, which helped to calm down the itch and overall uncomfortable feeling. It can sting a little at first, but that goes away after a few minutes. I also used Benadryl cream to stop the itch when it really got bad. I didn't go tanning, but took any opportunity to sit out in the sun. But the best remedy I found was healing from the inside. I started taking probiotics and other homeopathic remedies to boost my immune system. I also drank at least one vitamin supplement a day. Since this rash seems to be caused by a virus and can come along with a cold or flu, the most important thing you can do is not stress and do whatever you can to boost that immune system! I have chronic sinusitis, so i'm on antibiotics all the time. I believe this is what made my immune system so low and allowed me to catch this nasty thing. My doctor said I should really be on probiotics more often and continue to take vitamins. Hopefully this helps! Let me know if you have any questions. I'm happy to share my experience.
