A GP, a father and a textbook case walk into a room...

COLEMAN'S CORNER: A textbook case of pityriasis rosea walked into my room recently. Well, technically it was the girl who walked in — the rash was just a hanger-on. But to me, the rash was everything.

The more I looked, the more textbook it became. It was as if a Murtagh’s patient education handout had grown legs and a ponytail.
