Can I Relieve Itching Due To Pityriasis Rosea Using A Cold Powder?

Hello Jovi, thank you for using the HealthReplies.com service.
Pityriasis rosea is a skin disease characterized by red or pink colored, scaly, and slightly protruding, which is thought to be caused by a virus from the herpes virus class. a rash appears.
Pityriasis rosea is a condition that does not require special treatment, and in most cases it can go away on its own within 12 weeks. Simple measures such as bathing or bathing in warm water, and giving calamine lotion can also relieve the itching.
If with the steps above the itching still does not improve, I suggest you to consult directly with a dermatologist so that a thorough examination can be carried out, such as a physical examination of the skin, supporting examinations if necessary such as a KOH test, and syphilis examination, so that it can be given treatment according to your diagnosis.
As for the things you can do right now are:
- Maintain cleanliness of the body, with a shower at least twice a day.
- reduce stress
- Do not use tight and moist clothing
- Do not exchange personal items with others, such as towels, underwear, and so on
Thus the information that I can convey, hopefully can help you.
