Hello...

Just wondering if anyone else has had this and if so...did anything help?

I've had it for a few weeks and it's so beyond annoying. My Dr prescribed erythromycin 4 times a day for 2 weeks as it helps some cases of this ugly rash. But I can't even imagine what it would do to my gut so I haven't done that.

Any help or thoughts is appreciated as always!

According to the Mayo Clinic it is thought to be viral, in which case antibiotics won't work. They also say it usually goes away by itself in about ten weeks. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/pityriasis-rosea/basics/definition/con-20028446


gluten-free since June, 2011

It took 3 !/2 years but my intolerances to corn, soy, and everything else (except gluten) are gone!

Life is good!

I would avoid the antibiotics unless your doctor knows for sure that it is from bacteria! Sounds like no one knows the cause.

I looked it up and I would have to say that I had this once (about 20 years ago). My GP thought I was reacting to a new brand of supplements. It went away in a month or two. in any case, I ditched that brand of supplements. It was winter, so there was no need for me to wear a bikini!

Thanks ladies. It is indeed thought to be viral. My Dr sent in the prescription and I got a call from my pharmacy that they don't carry it. Felt like it was a sign for sure.

I've read that UV therapy can help. So I've been sitting out back with my shirt hiked up to my bra line and my shorts pulled down to my bikini line since I don't own a 2 piece. I can't even imagine how I look! Lol!

But it is quite irritating. You would think with our super immune systems that maybe we wouldn't get viruses?
