I would also add that if you had a severe reaction after eating fish, don't ignore the mercury angle.  Reducing/eliminating mercury has helped a lot of us on this forum.  As you mentioned, any other methods that contribute to overall skin health will help as well.

(Male, 58) I was diagnosed with Grover's August 14th, 2017 after several months of seeing little red patches pop up on my shoulder. Two biopsies were taken. One with Grover's the other was diagnosed as Chronic Folliculitis. Seems they are the same. I've read through much of this forum. I feel terrible for everyone who is suffering much more than I am and I pray for your healing and that mine does not get worse.

I have also had several instances of BCC in the past. I really hadn't experienced the horrid itching until I had a whole pompano fish at a Thai restaurant. I think I had some type of allergic reaction that caused something strange to happen and my Grover's went ballistic spreading to my chest and itching really bad.

Someone on this forum said a zinc based ointment worked well for relief. I happened to have a bottle of zinc assay in the cabinet so I put it on my outbreak full strength. It stings like crazy but after a bit I have complete relief and control. Each red spot seems like it is drying up and if I scratch it, it will bust open and ooze a little liquid. Yuck. I hope that doesn't cause it to spread. I've also tried clove oil and DMSO. Seems to bring the worst out to the top of the skin OR speeds up the cycle.

What I've learned from this forum is that there are many different things tried but not one specific thing that fixes. Lots of reading so I won't continue blabbering away.

I'm really liking what I just read today about overall body acidity, yeast or fungus, and nutrient deficiency. Seems like there might be something significant there in that line of thinking.

My goal is to study and choose a protocol, stick to it and see if it works. I'm thinking this is an autoimmune response. Love and healing to all. Praise be to God.

Thank you, golfboy307! It has been a long road. I had no idea Vit D was even a treatment for it, I wish I had known a lot sooner!

I have had success myself with my own all natural cream.  I have used it 3x a day for 3 weeks and the bumps associated with the GA on the back of my hand are all gone!  The redness is there and I am continuing to apply the cream as I have all natural ingredients that are intended to help try to fade the scaring but the cream does work!  Even my kids have noticed a difference and think even the redness has faded and don't see it.  I can run my finger over the skin and not feel a single bump.

I created an Etsy page with the cream if anyone wants to try it.  no promises but it has worked for me.  I understand there are many variations of GA but I am hopeful it will help someone else.

A number of women have shared on this chain, indeed it was started by a woman. There first few months are the worst and this disease is usually a temporary condition lasting 6-12 months. I've had to use a typical steroid, Triamcinolone, to get relief but you have to use it very sparingly. I've also found, ironically, that a hairdryer on high takes the string out for a while. That enabled me to start being able to sleep at night. Currently, I'm just using Cortisone 10 and Gold Bond Excema Relief lotion to cool down my skin. Hopefully, you have the temporary Grover's and it will pass on a few months.

I am a woman who had/has Grovers.  It lasted for about a year and a half.  My posts on this thread go way back.....
Today I still have a few spots on my chest that appear from time to time and then go again.  A new dermatologist recommended
this cream and it seems to be pretty effective: Eucerin (the German laboratory based in Hamburg) "Complete repair UREA PLUS".
In the past when my Grovers was truly very serious, I used a plant cream that no longer exists but which helped enormously. 
Although I have very little Grovers these days this new cream is worth trying I think.

All the best, I hope your case will be like mine, a transient one.

N.B.  I have been a vegetarian all my life (no meat no fish) and I have always been extremely sportive. I am blonde with blue eyes and spent too much time in the sun (unprotected) when I was a child in the sixties.
