I think I have pityriasis rosea, but It has dissapeared and then started to return?

The rash was red, dry, itchy blotches that began with a single roundish patch on my upper arm/shoulder that appeared a few weeks before the rest. It the spread all over my chest and neck, with one or two on my legs arms and stomach. This lasted around 6 weeks before disappearing almost completely and very quickly. Now, 4 or so weeks later, it's appearing on the back of my hands and wrists as well as my arms and chest. Is this characteristic of PR, and how can I finally get rid of it for good?

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
Even though you have the symptoms of Pityriasis Rosea, it's not good to try and self-diagnose a skin rash. And it is not in your best interest for me to diagnose you only by knowing the symptoms. A misdiagnosis can lead to the wrong treatment which can make it worse. So before trying your own treatments for Pityriasis Rosea; I highly suggest that you be diagnosed by a doctor who can the tell you the best treatments.
