DHEA side effects (ex: pityriasis rosea)

anyone taking DHEA and having side effects?  i started taking it on 1/2 and have developed this dotted rash all over my abdomen that appears to be pityriasis rosea.  this is common in people under 35 and pregnant women.  (I'm not pregnant, but TTC).  my RE said to stop the DHEA to see it clears up.  
​anyone have this before?
