I have pityriasis rosea which started with a three day headache. The herald patch arrived several days later followed by a rash 10 days later. I was wrongly diagnosed by my doctor who said it was ringworm. Easy mistake to make. Finally on Friday, another doctor told me it was Pityriasis rosea. I did some research including looking at this website. I have sunbathed for several hours a day making sure i didn't burn. I have followed a different diet. Cut out gluten, diary and sugar and eaten a lot of green veg, salad , chicken soup, almonds, spices such as tumeric aswell as raw garlic and ginger. I also used coconut oil for a few days. Yesterday I decided to apply sudocream which contains zinc oxide. This has had a massive impact on the rash. I think the sun helped but the cream has flattened the spots and the colour is fading. The herald patch has almost gone and I hope the rest of the rash will have disappeared in a few days. The zinc oxide is amazing and I would advise anyone to try it. I hope this helps others as this website helped me so thanks to all who post.
