i have got pityriasis rosea some more info please

i have just come back from the doctors and i have got pityriasis rosea as well i have a hearld patch on my side and lots of small patches on my shoulders chest and a couple on my neck, he told me that there is nothing to get rid of this and as mine does not itch i dont need creams, my question is can it spread through my bedding to other parts of my body, or if i touch the rash and then by mistake take another area of my skin will it spread there. i have done a google search but not found anything.

No it does spread that easy.It is not certain whether it is transmitted by an infective organism.But one thing is certain it is self limiting.

No it does not spread that way. What you have is caused by a virus, it will go away on it's own, not to worry symptoms are usually mild.
