Rare skin condition with no solution

Hello

I am a 25 year old female who has been diagnosed with a rare skin condition called lichen planus pigmetosus inversus. It started 3 years ago with one small spot below my armpit, since then it had grown into 6 spots some large some small. The spots on on my back, the back of my arm, my inner thigh and the one under my armpit, which is the largest. I have been to serveral docters and none of them know how to treat this condition. It is very fustrating and noone seems to be able to help me. I am becoming depressed over these spots and they just keep getting worse. They almost look like bruises but darker, the pigmentation is horrible. One docter called it, "ashy dermotosis" also referred to as Erythema Dyschromicum perstans. If anyone has any information or suggestions I would really appreciate it!

Thanks
Christina
