Have pityriasis rosea and anxiety. Rash on neck, chest, shoulders. Related to drinking alcohol?

Hello, I was diagnosed with pityriasis rosea , with symptoms going on 8 weeks. I also have moderate anxiety , sometimes accompanied with a nervous rash on neck , chest, and shoulders. Here of late, I have noticed that alcohol seems to intensify the rash. Could all this be related, or should I be on alert for something else?

Hi, as such there is no relation between alcohol and p rosea but just that alcohol causes vasodilation which may increase redness of the lesions.
take care
