Our expert says:
Pityriasis rosea is related to viral infections and your doctor is correct in saying that there is no real treatment for this condition. It normally resolves by itself within 4 to 6 weeks. You can however, use oral antihistamines and topical steroids to decrease the itching. You can ask your pharmacist for this, as it is available over the counter.
