Black Rash Around The Chest?
Hello, from a few months ago, I found signs like pityriasis in my chest, but it was black, and I didn’t feel itchiness and so on like the signs of pityriasis in general. Do you think it is still pityriasis?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. There are various types of pityriasis, there are pityriasis alba, pityriasis versicolor, pityriases lichenoides chronica, pityriasis rubra pilaris, and the most frequently mentioned are pityriasis rosea. Pityriasis rosea is a skin disease characterized by a red or pink rash, scaly, and somewhat prominent, and can itch and may or may not.
What happens to you, to be able to diagnose it must be examined directly. If only based on the similarity in appearance on the skin, there are a lot of skin diseases that look similar to each other but are actually very different. Not infrequently, even dermatologists can not distinguish if only seen without any other information, especially ordinary people. Plus, one of the most common features of pityriasis is that it is red and what you have is black. So our advice, you should still check yourself to a dermatologist first to see about possible diseases. Your doctor will also ask you various things about your health and habits to distinguish them from scratch marks, the effects of sunlight, cosmetic side effects, infections, tumors, or even cancer.
Meanwhile do not need to worry too much, and do not also do independent treatment. Stay healthy, and use sunblock when going outdoors. So, hopefully answering your question.
