Grover's Disease

Have had very little cilantro, mainly in salads. But have found that 50,000 IU of vitamin A and 6,000 IU of vitamin D seems to have turned things around. June would’ve been the magic 6 month anniversary and supposed minimum for Grover’s to go away.
BUT I am unsure of the side effects (If any) of these vitamins. Was not concerned initially because all I wanted was an end to the itching. My back is clear and have some bumps on my legs, and very little itching on my legs.
Anyone out there know about or has anyone taken A and D?

frogger- One of the treatments my derm puts me on when broken out is Calcipotreine Cream, a topical. It is man made vitamin D which is used for the growth and development of skin cells. It is widely used for plaque psoriasis (which I don't have). I used to take vitamin D pills and found it made no difference in my Grover's. Google vitamin D toxicity- not a good thing. Many today take calcium with vitamin D for absorption along with vitamin D and are getting too much. My sisters doctor took her off of vitamin D as the levels were to high in her blood.

I swear it was Vitamin D 5,000 IU daily that caused my Grover's disease 5 years ago.
