Re: pityriasis rosea help

The sun is the best light treatment for pityriasis rosea. Sun bathe every day and it will help relieve the itch and help it clear. I am not a sun bather, but, the sun does work. Wear a very skimpy bathing suit so maximum skin is exposed to the sun.

I have read that pityriasis rosea is us caused by vitamin D deficiency. A few minutes in the sun will help provide vitamin D.

My dermatologist suggested this.

Re: pityriasis rosea help

wow the sun bathing is news to me. i would think that it would really burn the sensitive skin. i may be wrong but that sounds odd. i'll have to look that one up.

Re: pityriasis rosea help

You don't stay in the sun very long at a time, 30 minutes maximum turning frequently to expose all rash spots to the sun.

Pityriasis rosea has what is called "mother" spots with smaller spots nearby and a mealy red rash that itches.

Dermatologist use ultra violet light booths to treat many skin conditions including pityriasis rosea.

Re: pityriasis rosea help

I would be burned bad in 30 minutes. update: i just looked it up on my end and i found that sun is not good for this. hope this helps. it's really easy to check it out though. be careful. i hope that doesn't offend you but just don't wants problems to happen.have looked this up and i found where it says sun is not good.
