Pityasis roses. A skin rash that sometimes begins as a large spot on the chest, abdomen or back, followed by a pattern of smaller lesions. The cause of pityriasis rosea isn't well understood, but it may be triggered by a viral infection. Some evidence indicates the rash may be triggered by a viral infection, particularly by certain strains of the herpes virus. But it's not related to the herpes virus that causes cold sores. Pityriasis rosea isn't believed to be contagious.
