The herald patch, which can measure up to 4 inches (10 centimeters) in diameter and is characteristic of pityriasis rosea, is a large circular or oval spot that usually appears on your chest, abdomen, or back.

Smaller spots that spread out from your body’s center in the shape of drooping pine-tree branches usually follow the herald patch.

Treatment may help with the symptoms of pityriasis rosea, which can cause itching and can affect people of any age but most frequently affects people between the ages of 10 and 35.

Causes–The exact cause of pityriasis rosea is unknown, but some evidence suggests that the rash may be brought on by a viral infection, particularly by certain strains of the herpes virus. Pityriasis rosea is not thought to be contagious.

SymptomsBefore the herald patch appears, some people experience headache, fatigue, fever, or sore throat. Pityriasis rosea typically starts with a large, slightly raised, scaly patch on your back, chest, or abdomen.

Your back, chest, or abdomen may develop smaller, scaly spots that resemble pine trees a few days to a few weeks after the herald patch appears. The rash can cause itching, which is occasionally severe.

ComplicationsPityriasis rosea complications are not common, but they could arise.
