I am facing this strange thing on my neck. Round red rashes it looks more like pityrose rash but i am not sure one fine day when i woke up i saw tiny rash then slowly it started to grow. I read someone saying taking shower with antidandruff shampoo and applying cansten cream from counter will help, i tried that it never helped, though now rash looks bit purple and little bit scally in morning. Anyone know what is i have done research of most kind of rashes all i can say this symtpm looks like pysoris or pityrosea but i have it one neck on left and right hand side. So i am not sure if its pityrosea
You seem to be having pityriasis rosea. Pityriasis rosea is a common human skin disease which presents as numerous patches of pink or red oval rash. The rash may be accompanied by low-grade headache, fever, nausea and fatigue and itching.
My sincere advice is to get it evaluated from a dermatologist and get other possibilities ruled out. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
