Does anybody know anything about his skin problem. I want to know if it is serious as it looks. The internet is scaring me with the information I am finding on this skin problem.

Thanks,

pr

Had This Skin Disease
About 20 years ago I had this patch of scaly raised bumps on my collar bone. I went to the doctor and gave me some salve and I have never had a reoccurance. The new studies show if you do not get it treated soon it could turn into some type of skin cancer. Please have it checked out.

Cure For Pityriasis Rosea
I had this for 4 weeks and it was just getting worse. I tried erythromycin and it didnt work. I was so frustrated and down(I have the herald patch and about 20 other small marks). Then, I put preparation H on all the spots and they are almost GONE OVERNIGHT! It is a miracle. Try it. Let me know if this works for everone else

re: Cure for PR
I'm going to try your suggestion. I've been putting over-the-counter hydrocortisone on the spots and taking benedryl at night. Didn't think it was doing anything so I quit for 3 days. They spots got redder, so I started up again and they have faded back to a dark pink. I just want them gone.

Pityriasis Rosea
I've had what I self-diagnoses last spring as ringworm, dr confirmed, I followed the normal protocol of pills and cream and it seemed to stop. Have a large (5x7) dark spot on the back of my left thigh. Didn't go away but didn't grow either until fall/winter arrived. I have now several, new large spots, pink with raised bumps around the perimeter in my groin area and lots of little spots on my inner and outer thighs, basically from my hip bone to below on my knee on left leg and moving that way on my right leg. the little spots ich when they are new or when they get hot.
Dr now thinks it is something 'serious' like a thyroid disorder/immune deficiency, gave me a prescription for steriod cream which I ditched.
I've spent most of this afternoon on the net researching and finally came to the realization that my symptons resemble mostly this PR thing and the first treatment I'm going to try is Preparation H. I will post my findings.

I was diagnosed with PR yesterday, but had no herald patch; not itching; just pink scaly patches which are more oval than round. All the lesions showed up at one time so I'm wondering if it could be subacute cutaneous lesions related to lupus. Anyone with experience in this area? My gut tells me it isn't PR, and the only pics of lesions I can find that look the same as mine are of subacute cutaneous lesions. I'm a veteran, so dealing with the VA student docs is not ideal. Thanks in advance for any help.

"CURE" It worked for me.
I was diagnosed by my doctor a few days after the herald patch came and the oval rashes started forming and spreading. She told me it could last up to four months and that there was absolutely nothing to cure it. I freaked! I knew that sunlight would help so the following weekend I went swimming and tanning at my in-laws. They have a saltwater pool and I'm not sure what happened that day but it's now a week later and all my marks have turned into little dry spots. They started flaking like a sunburn and are almost gone!
I would say the combination of the water drying the spots out and the direct sunlight helped me extremely!
I haven't used creams, pills, etc at all. Just this one day out in the sun! Please try this before you spend a lot of cash on treatments or things to make this rash better. Hope this helps!
