Skin rashes in winters. Have mild asthma and allergies. Could this be pitiriasis liquenoide? Treatment?

I have a rash that occurs every winter for the last 5 years. I am 42and have mild asthma and allergies. It starts as a small red mark and progresses to a ring worm type rash, with scale at the centre but the red ring never meets 360 degrees . Never itcy Never in the same place and usually sparing the face. (Apart from now, I have one on my eyebrow) I ve been told it might be a rare condition called pitiriasis lichenoides. It always goes in the summer, even if I don t sunbath, but that does help. I m sure its not regular excema. What is it and how csn I stop it?

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for calling H.C.M.Forum.
You are 42 yrs, You have mild asthma and allergies, it starts as a small red mark and progress . Never itchy, and never at the same place.
It is a mild allergy, caused by allergens found in the winter. If you take care in the winter you will be fine. If you can find the allergen, like winter fruits, flowers, wool, etc, you may not get it at all.
If you feel it uncomfertable you can consult a physician for diagnosis and treatment.
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery.
Best regards.
