Pityriasis rosea

Greetings everyone!! Recently visited a dermatologist with a problem of blisters and eruptions all over stomach, back and forearms. Doctor said it is Pityriasis rosea. Just wanted to know as to if there are any home remedies to avoid the scar? Also how much time would it take for the scars to go off completely. Warm Regards.

Hello, there are no known home remedies for this condition. Pityriasis rosea normally heals without scars. The time duration for lesions to heal varies from person to person & can last from a few weeks to few months. Any residual pigmentation if any will disappear over time. Avoid fiddling with the lesions.
