Were you biopsied for GD? I was and it came back negative but I was at the end of my first outbreak, going on 1 years, the scabs were beginning to fall off. My sister's GD is dramatically less severe than mine yet her biopsy came back positive. She has an ongoing rash under her breasts. My derm said the GD must be in the active stage for biopsy to be accurate. No doubt I have it so no point in another biopsy, also I am symptom free right now.

2 years ago I was biopsied and it came back as Darier's Disease. My symptoms were more mild then and for about a year it came and went easily. Then last year it came back again and I was biopsied a second time and also they said Darier's or Grovers. I see my symptoms more reflect GD which is why I need to do genetic testing as Darier's is genetic. My sister has similar skin to me and she does have skin rashes occasionally but nothing like mine. She has never been biopsied. My rash is on my chest so I already have two scars on my collarbone area that are visible so I really don't want anymore. I have never had the rash anywhere other than on my chest and neck. Never my trunk area. Right now my worst symptom is the constant itching that has improved with cilantro smoothies but not gone completely.
