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

I did the cilantro smoothies for over two months with out any effect. At one point I was drinking two a day. Nothing. I just did my second round of oral steroids and was blessedly itch free for about 4 days. Now that I am off steroid, the itching has returned, but not yet to the degree I had, before I started to take it. Different things for different people. I did have a biopsy that indicated gd. Now , because my "rash" is so slight, my derm. thinks it may be something else. I have found that this sight gives me a ton of info. Now, I will try the Lysine. I take trazodone at night and sleep like a log. Highly recommended. Thanks for your input.

I have been taking trazodone 50 mg for more than 10 years. It gets me to sleep, but doesn’t keep me asleep. I’ve been taking chlorphaneramine, an antihistamine, since GD outbreak, which helps me stay asleep, but when my GD got more aggressive, it wasn’t enough. Since taking lysine, rash continues to fade. Itching less, but not gone, but sleep through night with one application of Bengay at bedtime. To reiterate, since GD can wax and wane naturally, I’ll know more in about a week.
