1 week with Pityriasis Rosea and I'm freaking out

Posted , 5 users are following.

I'm literrally crying right now. Just came back from the doctor and she diagnosed me with pityriasis rosea. Gave me Helpoderm, Flonidan and Prednisolon. (I live in Albania so mind the names of the drugs cuz we use different ones here I guess.) 

My chest, belly, back, neck, shoulders, a little bit on my thighes and face are covered with these redish evil spots. 

Since I got home I have done nothing but research and I'm literally crying my eyes out right now.

For two weeks my classes start and I dont know how in the world I am gonna go to school like this because I read here that it takes weeks and even months to get rid of it. 

I wanna know what the hell causes it and some tricks to maybe get rid of it faster. 

Thank you in advance. =)
