Thanks for your query

Your partner seems to have developed pityriasis rosea.
It is a self limiting condition.
It usually follows viral illness mainly cough and cold.
Itchy red round to oval lesions seen on upper body.
Just apply a topical steroid.
Can take antihistamines if there is itching.
You need not worry as it is self limiting.
Takes about two to four weeks for complete cure.

Hope it helps
