the dr. explained that the first big patch is called a herald patch since it's biggest. So his name is Harold the Patch.
Wow. You named your rash.

If its pityriasis rosea, go tanning and put anti-dandruff shampoo all over it for like 10 minutes a day. It'll go away much faster that way.
Could be Tinea Versicolor. You can treat that with selenium sulfide. Pitoriasis rosea is treated differently.
go tanning, it kills that shit
Oh, I get it! It's funny because the patient's doctor named his rash!
Enjoy your pityriasis.
I think everyone names it Harold. I had it last year at thanksgiving. My boyfriend told one of my estranged cousin's dates about it and how I named it Harold. So that made thanksgiving special last year, thanks Harold.
Um, you're only supposed to get it once. Might want to get that checked out.
It's terrible! I had it during the summer . Kill me
haha whats crazy is that i found today that i have the same rash. after a couple weeks of thinking it was a bad allergic reaction to my newest tattoo. looks like i will finally tell my mother about it.
I JUST GOT OVER MINE 3 DAYS AGO! I self diagnosed on webmd and I too named my Harold patch. I called it pop-eye though... Cuz pirates wear a patch...omg though MOST ANNOYING THONG EVER especially when you have a new bf and you just wanna get naked but can't... Fail
I have the same rash with my very own herald.
Yay finally 703 virginia!
how the fuck do you people know what this shit is instantly? just because of the herald patch thing?
Yeah, from the herald patch...it fucking sucks to have!! Itches like a motherfucker!! I wanted to rip the skin from my torso! Went tanning, used anti-itch lotion and 2 rounds of a z-pak and it was gone in 3 weeks...
lol I also to add to 5:11pm there, I had the "Christmas tree" pattern of it and my boyfriend kept telling all of my family how even my rashes were festive, it was revenge for making him go to my families thanksgiving dinner.
yeah, its pretty great let me tell you. I had it on my stomach a few months ago and it lasted maybe 6 weeks? they don't even know what it is or what causes it but they assured me that its only a 1 time thing. sure enough..i have it again right now on my leg. its great.
It's called a patch of herp nasty ass.
Pityriasis rosea is diagnosed based on mnay things but the most prevelant thing is the "herald patch" which is the first and largest lesion that appears on the body. Why do I know this? I have it currently. 8 weeks of hell
pityriasis rosea.....it's a total bitch b/c they can't even tell you how long you'll have it. it will go away though, just get prepared for weird stares when you take you clothes off, if that doesn't happen to you already.
Thing.. Not thong.. Freud would be proud though
i had it, thank god i was the end of the summer. mine lasted about 2 1/2 months. it was sooo itchy and once you start, you can't stop. good luck.
Yeah I've had it twice. Sucks so bad. Lasted 3 months this time
