I have had this skin condition now for 8 months. It started with a "herald patch" near my ribcage. It's now spread to my upper back, chest, arms, thighs and calfs. It itches a lot lately and gets irritated when taking hot showers or using hot tub. I've used topical creams, ointments, Prednisone (shots and pills), oatmeal baths...nothing seems to work. Could it be Pityriasis Rosea? I have pictures....from last Sunday.
