... in response to Causes of Pityriasis Rosea
  1. J P J P United States says:

    My first experience with PR ever. My dermatologist says she even got it, while in England, prior to being a derma-student. My family has very little medical history, if at all, apart from few high blood pressure persons. I've been caring for a lot of Mycoplasma patients this winter season and singled out either this (droplet isolation) or my contact isolation patients, which may have induced my skin reaction...I'm thinking it is more to do with a droplet source though since gloves are better barriers than a flimsy mask. I noticed it around Jan. 5; it is now Feb. 8 and minor, non-itchy patches are still sprouting then enlarging.
