Hi..... Pityriasis rosea usually requires no treatment and resolves spontaneously. Treatment is not necessary if the rash does not cause significant problems. Typically, pityriasis rosea will usually clear on its own within 6-8 weeks without medical intervention..... Continue with the prescribed medications.....
