    Treat the itching

    Pityriasis gets better on its own without specific treatments. The main focus for treatment is to control the itching, using a combination of creams, lotions and antihistamine tablets. Not only is itching unpleasant, but if the person scratches a lot there's a risk of damage to the skin, secondary infections and permanent skin changes.

    Sometimes ultraviolet treatments are used and steroid creams used but these are best used only in extreme cases.

    Avoid getting too hot

    Anything which makes the person feel hot can make the rash and itching much worse. So it's important to avoid physical activity, hot baths, and so on.

    How can it be treated?

    Usually no treatment is needed. A mild corticosteroid such as hydrocortisone cream or calamine lotion may help if the rash is itchy and extensive. If the itching is still severe despite these treatments, your doctor may suggest a stronger steroid cream or treatment with ultraviolet light.

    Effects on Family of Pityriasis Rosea

    Pityriasis rosea is not an infectious disorder. There is no risk to family and friends.

    Hi Angie

    I have been using the same cream Canestan HC at first it worked a treat and totaly cleared my rash, I was using it 3 times daily along side Diprobase. I then went on holiday and only used it once a day and when I came home the rash flared up again.

    It costs around £5 for a small tube and I need to cover my stomach, back and neck, at this rate I'll be poor and blotchy! Did your PR clear completly after the itching stopped? I'm wondering whether to just use Diprobase and piriton?

    Hicho ni kidogo nilicho pata
