i am new to this forum and am a 28 year old female and was recently diagnosed with pityriasis rosea. I think I have had it for about 8 days. I think that the "herald patch" appeared about 9 days ago and I now have roughly 45 spots between my waist and neck. My primary-care physician told me that there was nothing I could do to prevent the spread of it and I had to let it "run it's course." however, my derm. Prescribed me 7 days of erythromycen (which I only took for one day because it made me feel ill)....In addition, I avoid oral antibiotics as much as possible.
Has anyone had any luck with alternative therapies specific to pityriasis rosea? Can anyone recommend a good alternative practicioner in nyc?

I have a ton of weddings to go to beginning in 5 weeks and am very concerned about my skin! Any helpful advice is greatly appreciated.
I had pityriasis rosea and my doctor prescribed Intraconazole one a day. I also used a cream Eurax to stop the horribe itching of the red patches. I also changed my washing powder - just in case.
Since the symptoms look like other the doctor asked me to follow up.
The meds worked - Gone in a week and cleared in 15days. I used Aveeno skin relief and sleep with temperature low and heat aggravated it.
Follow up was to use Selsun Blue shampoo on body for ten minutes and shower (twice a week). Excellent physician
