Hi all! I have developed a rash and it was thought to be chickenpox/adult shingles. Was given medication for this but the rash was persistent and didn't seem to be following the characteristics of chicken pox so I went back for a second opinion. They decided it wasn't chicken pox but couldn't be sure what it was other than 'a viral rash'....
I have sat for days doing research on different types of skin rash and came across PITYRIASIS ROSEA! I am almost positive this is what I have.....near every single symptom/characteristic is bang on the money. The only thing I don't have or have maybe missed is the herald patch. I was wondering if anyone has had Pityriasis rosea WITHOUT a herald patch???
Can't get in to see my doctor (too busy, typical) so hoping for a bit of info and support?
Anything greatly appreciated, also.....the itching is driving me to madness!!!
