In brief: Pink patches

Pityriasis roscea , called pr, is a common skin condition that presents are round finely scaling pink spots, most often on the chest and back.
They itch a tiny bit, and often start with one big lesion, that comes first and is called the mother plaque. Pr usually lasts about 3 months and occurs only once in an individual. It is thought to be some form of a skin allergy, possibly to a virus.
