Is PRP contagious?


While PRP is not contagious, it is important to include the phrase “not contagious” early in any first-time explanation of we look the way we look.

When dealing with a passerby who stares at your red and flaking skin in the cereal aisle at a grocery store., you might consider the following strategy:

❉  Make eye contact
❉  Smile
❉  Now say something like: “I have a very rare skin disorder that is NOT contagious. It’s called PRP which stands for pityriasis rubra pilaris.”

Remember — it’s your grocery store too and Clean up on Aisle 4 don’t mean you.
