Hello,

From the description of symptoms it sounds like pityriasis rosea. Pityriasis rosea is a common human skin disease which presents as numerous dry patches of pink or red oval rash. The rash may be accompanied by low-grade headache, fever, nausea and fatigue and sometimes by itching.

No treatment is usually required. In most patients, the condition lasts only a matter of weeks or months(upto six months).

If the rash persists then it will be best to get it evaluated from a dermatologist.Other possibilities of discoid eczema,ringworm and psoriasis  have to be ruled out then.
I hope that helps. Please do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries. Kind regards.
