Areas Covered: We covered the clinical manifestations and managements of pityriasis rosea, pityriasis lichenoides, and Gianotti-Crosti syndrome. Expert Commentary: Most patients with pityriasis rosea do not need any active intervention. Symptomatic relief of the pruritus would be adequate. For patients with pityriasis rosea that are serious, extensive, or causing severe impacts of their quality of life, oral acyclovir could be considered. For pityriasis lichenoides, managements would be depending on the type of the exanthem such as the acute form (pityriasis lichenoides et varioliformis acuta, also known as Mucha Habermann disease) the chronic form (pityriasis lichenoides chronic Juliusberg's disease), and the febrile ulceronecrotic Mucha-Habermann disease, which is a complication of the acute form. The management of Gianotti-Crosti syndrome is mainly symptomatic. The need for long-term follow-up for chronic complications of the underlying viral infections is still controversial.
