I've recently had a virus which then turned into tonsilitis, I was on antibiotics for 10days but half way through the course of antibiotics I came out in a rash starting on my tummy I went to the doctors and he said it's Pityriasis Rosea and there's not much he can do. He didn't really gice me much advixe but he said it'll clear up on its own after a few weeks however for me it's all over my tummy, back, thighs, arma, neck ears and inside my ears and it's slowly going onto my forehead which I went back and he again said there's not much he can suggest. It's upsetting me a huge amount as I haven't got much move clothing I can use to hide it as it's all down my arms now. I don't know what to do so I saw on here people recommend and got good results from sunbeds but all the posts I've seen are from about 3 years ago. I was wondering if there was anyone who's had it recently and have any advice.
At the moment I'm having cold or lukewarm showers, moisturizing with an ointment or aveeno cream but I notice after I moisturize the patches go really red again? But if I don't moisturize they're really dry and flaky?
I've also been taking priteze like the doctor said to try and stop the itching. I'm at a dead end and will do anything to try get rid of it purely because I can't hide it anymore it's all up my neck and side of my face and going down the bottom of my arms too. It's just horrible
Please help me
