So, I'm a 38-year old male who has been diagnosed with pityriasis rosea. I have now had this wretched disease for 6 months. I had a biopsy done in the first month and then had another one done in the fourth month because it kept getting worse. I have also had countless blood tests done that have shown that I'm healthy...
I have the traditional pattern, but it is now heavily concentrated in my groin and in my ears. It hurts to walk and I can't hear very well. I'm due to go back to the dermatologist in a few days, but I'm losing my mind. Steroid creams work for a while, but the patches keep coming back. I have tried Prreze as well. That cream helps smooth the spots out, but they certainly aren't going away. Black soap, head and shoulders, coconut oil...you name it, I've tried it. The itch right now is not as bad as it was. It is more painful than anything. I'm worried that I have yeast infection in the groin because of the ointments that I have put down there to try and give me some comfort. I have always ate a healthy diet and lift weights 4 times a week.
So, has anyone dealt with this nasty rash in the groin and in the ears? I can't imagine it is that common. That is why I think there is something else going on here. I'm dreading it, but I think I'm going to ask for a biopsy in the groin just to make sure it's not something else.
