Unlike Tinea Versicolor, which occurs mainly in summer and subsiding in winter, Pityriasis Rosea occurs principally in the winter. It affects children and young adults and usually involves the trunk, the armpit flexures and the flexures of the thigh and abdomen.
The condition initially develops as a single lesion (raised flat patch) on the trunk. One or two weeks later a second crop of smaller, multiple lesions will appear on the trunk and sometimes the limbs.
The lesions present initially as pale red, yellowish-brown or reddish-brown in color and later will develop a distinctive "Rose" hue (hence the name), with a “ring of scale” along the inside edge of the lesion. The accompanying itch varies in intensity.
The condition will often clear spontaneously within a month or two of presenting. Recurrence of the condition is usually rare.
