Just Diagnosed Urticaria Pigmentosa

I have just been diagnosed with Urticaria Pigmentosa and have been told their is no cure, only antihistamines if it gets worse. I have had it for years and I have little red blotches over most of my body.Thing is they don't really itch or get irritated or anything, it's just unsightly,Is there nothing I can do?Am I just getting fobbed off?

The antihistamines are just histamine blockers so they won't make the spots fade away. My doctor tells me that it fades in time, as our cells get replenished every 7 years. She also recommends whitening cream or soap if it really bothers me but innocuousAct is correct, it's only cosmetic so it's pretty much harmless. Are your spots all over? Can you count them? The thing to watch out for is if it gets systemic.

its innocuous, so don't worry
