I have non-itchy, non-painful, red raised sploches on my stomach, chest and neck. Sometimes dry looking and sometimes get really dark or almost fade away. It isn't uncomfortable, just not nice to look at. I want to be able to wear a bikini this summer but won't looking like this. Any help would be much apprieciated.
I had pityriasis rosea in February. And this sounds just like it, it's mainly caused by stress. If you have one larger patch, then it's a 99% it's this - this big patch is called the herald patch, and usually comes first. And I know the feeling, I just wanted to completely cover up because it was horrible. You'll have to get the doctor to properly diagnose this though. You can take anti-histamines to get rid of the redness and itchyness (they usually get itchy if you get hot). It should go away in about 3 weeks, make sure you get lots of sun so the skin returns to its normal colour as when they heal the skin is lighter where the patches once were.xo
