Brief Answer:
Treatment of grover’s disease

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at Healthcaremagic
I have gone through your complaints and understand your concern.
Grover’s disease can have a chronic relapsing course in some patients.
Some medicines that have found to be effective in Grover’s disease are isotretinoin, systemic steroids, and phototherapy.
These are prescription drugs and you need to see the doctor in person to get them.
Regards
Dr Asmeet

I had this once before but I think I now have a recurrence of Grovers appearing on my forehead. Is there really not much to do about this annoying skin condition?

I have a rash with small red bumps that itch on the sides of my torso. My back itchs every day and has small rashy areas. Ive changed my soaps used for washing clothes and shower to free and clear. Im trying to eliminate foods but nothing seems to help. I had a dematologyst tell me it looks like Grovers but this has been a problem for 2 years and from what I read about Grovers it ussually lasts under one year.
