Worse case ive seen so Pityriasis rosea (pictures included)

Posted , 2 users are following.

hello to whoever is reading this,

after receiving my booster shot, my body has an auto immune response and just like some of you, I was diagnosed with PR. My first doctor prescribed antibiotics which was no help at all and my next doctor confirmed that. he put me on some anti histamine pills and that's about it. I'm nineteen years old and living away from my family so its been very hard for me... My PR was so much worse compared to all the photos i was seeing online and it drove me wild.

fast forward to 2 weeks later, my skin is becoming very flaky it looks like i have dandruff on my body, but the sports are starting to become brown...I'm scared to moisturise it because what if that makes it go back to being red and big again... i really hope that this is a sign of the recovery process. if someone would give me some advice i would greatly appreciate that ❤️imageimageimage
