hi, new here..im a 30 year old female no underlying health issues (that I know about lol) just thought I would post my story hoping someone can relate to this?! Since the 12th of march I have had a rash on my legs it has slowly spread for the last 6 weeks only went as far as my hips and bum and one patch on arm think it has now stopped spreading. When I first noticed it I went into a few pharmacies the 1st one said looks like it's nothing to worry about and gave me a general cream for skin rashes. I used this and nothing worked. a week later another pharmacist said it was ringworm and gave me some fungal cream. Used this for a while but didnt seem to do anything. I had a video consultation with a doctor but he couldn't really see the rash clearly but also said it doesnt look like anything to worry about and to just give it time.
I spoke to my doctor again a few weeks later and he suggested it could be Pityriasis rosea. I have looked into this online and read some posts on here.. I do have a herald rash below my knee that was why I think they thought it was ringworm. i did also suffer with mild headaches for about 5 days thinking it was sinus related. It's now been 8 weeks and although some of the rashes are fading it's taking so long?! some are still red and the ones that have been here since the beginning have turned a brownish colour is that normal and part of the healing process? My GP are not accepting appointments due to coronavirus just feel so down as I cant get a diagnosis! its sending my anxiety through the roof! please help 😕
