Hi Pityriasis rosea can last upto 8 weeks. The rashes will subside on their own. Stop antifungal tablets and continue moisturiser cream often. You can also take anti allergy pills if you have itching. Wait for two more weeks and if it is not completely better meet a dermatologist for a second opinion snd biopsy if necessary.
