Ask a Dermatology Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello. I'm Dr ChipWhat's your question please?
Can you please post a photo of that for me on this page?
Got them--hold on please
Does that itch?
Have you ever had this before?
It's obviously an allergic reaction to something--sometimes new soaps, detergents, foods, etc
But many times the trigger can't be determined
For now you can try over the counter hydrocortisone cream and Caladryl lotion both applied twice a day and oral Claritin or Zyrtec taken once a day for a week
That should clear it up, but, if not, you'll need a course of oral prednisone from your doctor
Please let me know if you need any more information
No--it doesn't look at all like pityriasis rosea
But that simply isn't pityriasis rosea
Give my suggestions a try
