Ashy Dermatosis is a rare condition and difficult to treat.<br /><br />The only treatment that is reasonably effetive is a drug called Clofazimine.<br /><br />This has been shown in several trials to be quite effective.<br /><br />You should discuss with your dermatologist about using this drug.<br /><br /><br />I hope my answer has helped you.

If you are looking for natural treatments, then treatments used traditionally for lichen planus works well here, since they are basically similar pathologies.

You can try Ayurvedic herbal treatments:

You can also try homeopathy:
