    It may be Pityriasis rosea. Its a puzzling rash and sometimes it itches but sometimes it doesnt. Thought to be caused by a virus and doesnt usually need any treatment if it doesnt itch. Often lasts about 3-4 months then clears. If you are worried then do go to your doctor,especially if you feel unwell.
