My first outbreak lasted 1 year with GD and then my pattern had been 6 months clear and 6 months symptomatic for 4 years. My first outbreak was about 30% worse then the subsequent ones (have read this is typical). Let's hope your first outbreak is coming to an end. Right now still clear (going on 1 year now) because when my 6 month outbreak started end of last March cilantro stalled it then stopped it. Just bought more cilantro today!

I have had GD for almost 2 years, (Biopsy confirmed), and have relied on Corticosteroid cream for relief. Recently I was prescribed oral Prednisone for 12 days for an unrelated inflammatory condition and enjoyed 14 days of "no itch heaven" . I have read an article in a U.S.publication, (I live in Australia), which contained the comment - "oral prednisone is very common", in the treatment of GD and was wondering if you have any knowledge of clinical results which might back up this statement, especially with regard to mild dosage extended use.
