Pityriasis.: Sounds like pityriasis rosea. Hard to tell without more descriptons or photos, but often this rash follows skin lines and gives a christmas tree like appearance on the back. Benign - resolves in a few weeks without any residual effect. ...Read more

Skin: If you started a new medication this could be a reaction. If so contact you doctor about the condition. If not you should drop a dermatologist so they can have a look before you start treating. Treatment would typically involve an ointment with steroid once a diagnosis can be made. In the short term there are several over the counter treatments for itching like cortisone. ...Read more
