There is no effective cure for pigmented purpura. It can disappear in a few weeks, recur from time to time or persist for years.
Topical corticosteroids & antihistamines help the itching, but they do not clear the purpura. Graduated compression elastic stockings help the associated venous stasis. If any medicine or food has caused or aggravted the condition, please discontinue the same.
