What can be Grovers Disease Treatment ?

I have grovers disease and the only thing that helps is a desending dose regimine of prednisone (7,6,5.etc.). Steroid creams offer no help. I do not want to keep taking prednisone all the time. Thanks

Most who suffer from Grovers Disease have a conspicuous rash and significant itch. The rash/itch can last for weeks or months, so dealing with it is imperative to allow you to live your life while the problem is diagnosed and helped.

After 8 months of trying different things, inlcuding prednisone which stopped working after two doses) my doc put me on Tetracycline (2x per day at 250 mg each dose - althought I am very light). The Grovers disappeared slowly over 3 weeks and has almost completely vanished after a month. I am VERY grateful and wish you success with this treatment.
