What is Pityriasis Rosea?
Pityriasis Rosea (PR) is a self-limiting rash that can occur both in adults and in children. PR is more common in people aged between 10 and 35 years and is most common during the spring and autumn months.
Its exact cause is unknown. No germ (bacterium, virus, or fungus) has been found in people with the rash. However, certain types of human herpes viruses may be a part of the cause. It is not associated with food, medicines or stress. However, some medicines can cause a rash which looks similar to pityriasis rosea.
Narrowband Therapy for Pityriasis Rosea
According to results published in the Indian Dermatology Online Journal, treatment of PR with narrowband UVB has been proven to considerably decrease the severity of disease and hastened recovery.
