a common, harmless skin disease
a papulo-squamous self-limiting disease of unknown etiology
a common skin disorder that begins with a solitary patch of redness and scaling and evolves over a period of about two weeks in a fairly generalized rash. It is not contagious.
A skin disease. Because of the similar spelling, this disease is sometimes confused with rosacea. (Note: There is no such thing as Pityriasis Rosacea.)
A common mild rash of unknown origin that can appear on a person of any age (most commonly at 10-35 years of age), may last from several weeks to several months, often begins with a "herald" patch, a large single pink patch on the chest or back and, within a week or so, more pink patches on the torso, arms and legs. There may be itching, especially when overheated. Treatment may include medications for the itching and soothing lotions or lubricants, and lukewarm rather than hot baths.

a common skin condition characterized by scaly, pink, and inflamed skin.
Pityriasis rosea is a skin disease marked by patches of pink, oval rash. Although its exact cause is unknown and its onset is not linked to food, medicines or stress, it is thought that this essentially non-contagious condition is set off by a virus. Pityriasis rosea can affect members of either sex of any age.
