Hi everyone i'm suffering from PR for almost 7 weeks, the red blotchy rash spreading all over my body and unfortunately even on my face. The rashes get worse on the 4th week and on that stage of suffering in PR I got the condition what they called Bell's Palsy. I Felt hopeless and keep asking my self why this is happening. I already seek medical attention and the doctor told me that the rashes will goes away on it's own but i'm still frustrated to bring back my normal life. Does anyone can tell if there is any hope with my condition? I

Im really desperate right now i've been suffering from PITYRIASIS LICHENOIDES CHRONICA for about 3 months. and it's very hard for me to accept that there is no cure for this horrible thing. Can someone help me how to manage my condition i had it on my face, neck and all over my body. Is it covering it up by using make up can conceal the redness of my rashes? I'm from the Philippines anyway can someone give me names of best cosmetic products for PLC that are available in my country? I really appreciate your help Thank you and more power!

It's important to seek help from a psychotherapist, if you feel depressed.  She can help you overcome these feelings and help you in seeing things in a more positive way.  Please keep us posted.

my left face affected by bell's palsy are completely functioning thank god. But my only problem is my rashes, I was diagnosed of Pityriasis Rosea and now its on my 8 weeks of suffering from herald patch and the redness is totally visible. I have it on my neck, arms, thighs, and at my back. I really don't know if these rashes will go away :(

Hi RimaBer,


Welcome to EmpowHER.  Sorry to hear how you feel.  Most people who have Bell's palsy recover completely, without treatment, in 1 to 2 months. This is especially true for people who can still partly move their facial muscles. But a small number of people may have permanent muscle weakness or other problems on the affected side of the face. Also, if your physician feels your rashes will go away. Then give it time and if it doesn't you will need to let him know.  


Here are some resources for you, which am sure will be helpful

Hi Daisy thank you for your message. the link you gave me helps me a lot. But my big problem is how to deal with the changes happens to me. i'm emotionally broken, i can't even go outside just to forget the nightmare i'm experiencing right now. I don't have friends that i trusted most. I don't have a bonded family. I used to be alone thinking that only myself can understand and accept me. :(
