Hi all,
I have a round rash on my hip now for about 2-3 months. It is not itchy or painful. Please see the picture. Does anyone know what it might be?

I cannot confirm anything without examination,but it can be pityriasis rosea. Pityriasis rosea is a common human skin disease which presents as numerous patches of pink or red oval rash. The rash may be accompanied by low-grade headache, fever, nausea and fatigue and very occasionally 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 have to be ruled out then.

Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing and if you have any additional queries.
