It is the skin disorder that has a noticeable pink rash and is oval in shape. Like other Rosacea forms, the probable causes for the onset of Pityriasis Rosacea are also unknown. The onset of Pityriasis Rosacea is not connected with stress, food or medicine. It has been advocated by most dermatologists that this skin disorder, which is generally non-contagious, is brought about by a virus.

An individual belong to any sex or age can be affected with Pityriasis Rosacea. However, the disease is most commonly traced in females lying in the age bracket of 8 - 35. The recurrence of the symptoms is not often and only 3% of the sufferers are seen to have a revisit of Pityriasis Rosacea.
