Has anyone ever had Pityriasis Rosea?

The doctor told me that is what I have, he is 90% sure, and gave me a hand out on it. I have never heard of it before today. If you or someone you know has had it, how long did it take the rash to go away and did it ever come back?

  • My son had it. It took I think about 6 weeks for the rash to go away. It never bothered him, it just looked funny. I did have to get a note for school saying he wasn't contagious.
