About Pityriasis Rosea
When a rash appears on your skin and you don't know where it came from, it can be worrisome. Our board-certified dermatologist at Summerlin Dermatology, Dr. Reuel Aspacio, understands your cause for concern. He provides skin consultations for common rashes, like pityriasis rosea, on a regular basis. The rash is preceded by an oval rash called “herald patch,” often mistaken as that of a ringworm, then spreads on the chest, back, arms and legs. This rash is slow to disappear even with treatment. We want you to come to our office and get the answers you are looking for by learning what type of rash you have and how to best treat it. Schedule an appointment in our Las Vegas, NV office at your earliest convenience.
"Awesome! They helped clear up my eczema! I've been struggling with eczema since I was 5 years old but it's gotten worse over the past few years, so coming here I was hesitant because I've gone to a doctor about my eczema and was prescribed something that burned and was very discomforting, after that experience I've just dealt with it and tried natural remedies. But I am so glad I decided to try this place out! My prescription was not pricey they made sure of that and my eczema was clearing up within 2 weeks! There was no discomfort using it and after a month it seemed to be completely cleared up. I am so grateful for them! I haven't seen my skin this clear in so long! Thank you!"- L.L. / Google / May 24, 2019

"Awesome Doctor - Hi. I just left one review but found the need to leave another. The staff at summerlin dermatology is awesome. From Jose and the girls at the front to my great coordinator Trish Hoffman. Every time I feel the need to get refreshed, and believe me at my age (65) its a lot I call the friendly staff at Summerlin Dermatology and Trish calls me back within minutes to schedule me in, when I can fit in. She is the greatest. She assist Dr. Aspacio before he comes in to inject botox and fillers I need. Very knowledgable, she always knows what I need done and never tries to upsale me. She gets me prepared for Dr. Aspacio and listens to what I what and makes suggestions for me which are always the right ones. I love Trish, she is the best and between the two of them I feel confident and revived when they are through. Dr Aspacio, magic fingers, is the best injecter I've been to. He is always LAUGHING AND smiling and he prepares you by marking his spots beforehand to prepare for the injections. A very knowledgable, professional doctor, I also come in on the skin side to get checked once a year to make sure nothing is cancerous, and he is efficient and doesn't leave any parts unchecked. I have been coming here for 5 years, if not longer now, and highly recommend his conviently located office on W Sahara, which is easy to get in and out off. The whole staff, is awesome and friendly and tries to have you leave satisfied. I love you guys, and Especially Trish and DR. Aspacio, who giggles all the time. Thankyou Yvonne"- Anonymous / Vitals / May 07, 2019
"Awesome. I highly recommend a visit to this office - First. As soon as you enter Dr Aspacio's office you are greeted with smiles from all of the front staff. Jose and the girls are always friendly and down to earth. I have been coming here for a few years now and have always been treated quickly, professionally and with a smile. I usually get injections by Dr. Aspacio so his coordinator Trisha Hoffman always handles my needs. She is so upbeat, pleasant and caters to my needs. She never pushes treatments on me I don't need and listens to what I really want. Trisha is absolutely the greatest and very knowledgable in her profession. Now Dr Aspacio, is another thing. He giggles, and laughs every time I come in. He is the greatest injector, always gentle, especially since My face is sensitive to needles, and at my age (65) I need a lot. He looks at your face, marks where you need it and uses his gentle hands to inject the fillers. I love these two, they are quit the team. I recommend Dr Aspacio as he is absolutely wonderful, from entering his office to leaving. And Trish is the greatest. She takes care of everything that you need so when you leave you feel satisfied that you got your monies worth. I highly recommend a visit to this office. Dr Aspacio is also very thorough in inspecting your body for any cancerous moles or sun issues which I get checked every year, on the dermatology side. There is also a skin esthetician for any of your skin treatments, like obagi. I will continue to go toothier office which is conviently located on W Sahara and easy to get to. Thankyou you guys for all you do. Yvonne"- F. / RealSelf / May 07, 2019

A breakout of pityriasis rosea is a common rash we suspect is from a virus. No matter the cause, an accurate diagnosis is important because many skin conditions may look like pityriasis rosea, such as bacterial infections, fungal infections, psoriasis, and lichen planus to name a few.
Pityriasis rosea usually starts as an oval rash (called the “herald patch”). Unfortunately, it is often mistaken as a ringworm. Within a week or two, a small oval rash will start appearing on the skin of the trunk and extremities, sparing the face, palms, and soles of the feet. The rash typically does not itch or burn. Although the rash typically goes away (even without treatment) and discoloration dissipates in eight weeks, it is distressing for many not knowing what is wrong with their skin.
After a physical examination by Dr. Aspacio, he will provide you with a detailed diagnosis and a treatment plan to follow to alleviate your symptoms or manage the rash. He may write you a prescription and/or offer you information for home remedies that may be applied to minimize your pityriasis rosea symptoms.
