Pityriasis Rosea Skin Condition
Pityriasis Rosea is a common skin condition that causes rashes. Normally, it starts as an oval spot on your chest, abdomen, or back. It is then followed by a rash around the area of the skin where the oval or circular spot is found. Our doctors at the Miami Center for Dermatology want to help you relieve the discomfort that comes with this skin condition. Normally, this condition is found around the ages of 10 and 35. Although this is not a seriously harmful condition, it can be to women who are pregnant.
