Pityriasis rosea

The progression of Pityriasis Rosea. I originally posted a few images of a circular rash that was mistaken for ringworm. The rash spread over the course of three days, but the smaller spots resolved about a week after that. The rash has returned this week and and tripled in numbers. Typically it will get worse before it gets better, but for those of you interested in skin conditions I thought I would share some images of the progression. Unfortunately this condition could take months to resolve.
