Pityriasis rosea 2nd round!

Posted , 3 users are following.

So, I had pityriasis rosea before; probably hot worst case ever seen since I had this thing for about 8 months! At the time I was on cortisone creams, steroids pills from time to time that got me super fat! And some type of steroid cream that helped but it wasnt much! I recently noticed one spot and I wasn't honestly concerned...after my pityriasis rosea cleared up the first time, I would get a spot here and there sporadically but it would go away quick so I didn't make a big deal about as I read this could happen! Recently I noticed one spot, but this time it was itchy, and no matter what I put on, it just looked irritated, along with that...a few others started to pop up different parts of my body! So now I know this isn't a drill, something is happening again! Bit this time I want to tackle this before it gets uglier and more spread out! So for those of you who had this or are currently dealing with it, what home remedies are you currently trying and what approa8are you taking to make this go away faster? I dont want to take steroids medication that just hide the symptoms and then pops back and worse once you're done with the medication! I really appreciate any input and piece of advice you can share with me!

    I think getting on acyclovir early is what helped clear my daughter’s rash so quickly.  We also did ester-c, coconut oil capsules, and omega-3, along with sunning for about 10 minutes each side several times a week and bathing in head and shoulders shampoo... but the acyclovir was key, in my opinion.  Hoping you have quick resolution this time!

      Thank you Nicole! I'm definitely trying all of that, I read on previous post about the head and shoulders shampoo and coconut oil, as well as sun bathing! I was 23 when I first got it and I honestly was so depressed since I had it for so long and at the time, I wasn't able to find much about online so I let it run its course, now I'm 30 with this again. I'll do everything in my power to make it go away ASAP!

    Mine lasted over a year- yes, biopsied and diagnosed. I used Prreze and it was gone in about a week. Hasn't come back! I tried sun and shampoo and vitamins and bio oil and black soap with no results. My dermatologist gave me steroid cream with not much help. The Prreze did it for me. Hope yours goes away soon!
