When will the marks from my pityriasis rosea peel/fade?

I was diagnosed with PR about mid/late June and it broke after the first week of July. I've been diligently putting coconut oil on the rash, and now the marks have widened, turned brown, and stopped itching. They're dry and don't become angry red anymore after I shower... But I'm still waiting for the marks to peel, fade, or otherwise disappear!! They've been brown and dry for so long. Is there anything to help this process along?? I hate looking at my body because it looks so gross with all the discoloration...
