Pityriasis Alba is a common skin condition that affects children, typically between ages 13 and 16. Symptoms present as rounded, scaly pink patches and may be itchy. As these 1-4 cm. patches fade, lingering skin discoloration often exists. This is more apparent on those with dark skin. Pityriasis alba usually develops on the cheeks, chin, forehead, neck, shoulders, upper chest and upper arms. Only one patch may present, though some children experience upwards of a dozen patches on various parts of their face or upper torso.
The exact cause of Pityriasis alba is unknown. The condition has similar triggers to eczema, including heat, humidity, irritating soaps, abrasive clothing and stress. There is no cure, and most cases of Pityriasis alba begin to clear up on their own within a few months, with severe symptoms fading within two years. If you experience symptoms resembling those associated with this condition, do not attempt to self-diagnose. Seek advice from a medical professional for proper diagnosis and treatment. A moisturizer is recommended to control dryness and itch.
