    If you have PR buy Prreze. I had it for 14 months, and this is the only thing that worked for me. I live in south Texas, and paint houses for a living- mostly outside, so if sun helped, I would have had PR for about 2 minutes. I tried dandruff shampoo, and it only made me itchier. I tried bio oil, tea tree oil, black soap, all without any success. Vitamin c and garlic made me very smelly, but did not help. Finally, after 14 months (yeah, I know, lucky that way, most people only have it for 6 to 12 weeks) I found Prreze and it was gone in a week!

    Good luck and keep us informed.

    I cant remember how long I've had this PR because I stopped counting the days but I think I'm nearing the end of my 3rd month, I've tried tanning, all kinds of creams, and it's still here BUT since I've been exfoliating about 3 times a week and drinking vitamin c and zinc every morning it has faded dramatically. My skin still itches but nowhere near as bad, and the patches are light pink rather than bright red and raised. I've been moisturizing once a day after exfoliating in the bath and letting it dry the rest of the time. I've ordered some prreze but it's taking 3 weeks to arrive, I'll update on the progress when it arrives. I know how horrible this is and I feel for you x

    I swear that it’s a vitamin deficiency! I saw so many people say after they’d been in the sun it went down but unfortunately living in England in the middle of winter isn’t the best to go tanning and I’m under 18 so couldn’t use tanning beds so I’ve just started taking vitamin D and multi vitamins and it’s much less red and less bumpy

      I was on my regular vitamin regimen when I got it. I take a good multi vit, 1000mg calcium with vitamin d, e, and a multi b. I have been doing that daily for about 45 years. I still got PR, and it lasted 14 months. I live in south Texas, and work painting houses, so, if tanning helped, I would not have had it for more than 2 minutes!

      Glad yours seems to be getting better!

      I was diagnosed with PR after two weeks of thinking I'd been bitten by bugs.

      I am now into my fourth week and a lot of the bumps are starting to dry, but I am still getting a few new red bumps daily.

      I have only been taking 1000mg Vitamin C, using a some skin creams to help with the itch and using anti histamine at night so I can get a semi decent nights sleep.

      I want to try PRREZE but I'm not sure how much of the cream you need for a full weeks treatment.

      I live in South Africa so I'd like to do this once off.

    IT'S GONE! Thank goodness for that! I definitely think it's something to do with the immune system because I stopped taking my vit c and zinc and the healing came to a complete halt. So I started again and now it's gone and I'm skin feels back to normal.

    I will NEVER EVER complain or be ashamed of my body with its loose skin where I carried my babies or stretch marks or it's pale colour again! I will wear a bikini to the beach and not give a f**k because I've never felt so body conscious as I did having pityriasis rosea and I am so thankful it is gone!

    I hope you all get rid of it too and it doesn't make you miserable any longer! Xx

    I tried prreze. I have very sensitive skin however and had a bad reaction to it. It burned any clear skin I had and it was very painful. I started washing with dove sensitive skin body wash and I applied Aveeno fragrance free 24 hour moisture lotion mixes with tea tree oil. I mixed a good squeeze of the lotion with 4 or t drops of the oil in the palm of my hand and rubbed it in.
