Grover's Disease: What works to help find relief?

Doc has now changed up program once more. I now use the Triamcinolone 0.025% (low dose) twice a day for five days and Elidel 1% twice a day on weekends. Doc took another biopsy and stitched the hole (I had him remove the worst one). I will post results of that when in. Doc has now started me on Isotretinion pills 40mg once a day. I would like to mention that I am seeing very significant improvement from day one of starting the pills only 7 days ago. I'm over 50% cleared up which may be the best I had ever been (previously) with the Impoyz cream (only allowed to use for two weeks max – then only to return). Can't wait to see next week. I'd also like to mention I started the Vanicream bar soap at the same time a week ago from these posts.

jdb3- You may still have GD if your biopsy is negative like mine was. I was biopsied at the end of my 1 year break out when the papuales were waning. If you check out the New Zealand Derm site I met all the common criteria except most are male. Plus their excellent photos of various eczema types matched mine to GD. My torso rash is classic on back and front torso and should have been obvious to my regular derm who kept treating it as a rash based on my Allergic Contact Dermatitis, ACD and I was getting zero relief. Also couldn't figure out how my ACD would be triggered as I had detoxed my world. It's hard to get doctors to not put you in a box,as they stop looking for other forms of eczema once they label you. I went to a new derm and she took one look and knew immediately
