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

I have been Grovers free for about a year now. I continued with the cilantro long past the time that Grovers disappeared JUST IN CASE! Recently, I have a cilantro shake only about once a week. On the GD Facebook site I continue to read that many have obtained success using Gold Bond powder. One person did an experiment and used a prescription on one half of her chest/midriff and Gold Bond on the other half. 4 to 6 weeks later she showed her derm the results. The Gold Bond side was completely clear. The prescription drug side was hardly clearing at all. She had been a GD sufferer for years. There are many other reports of the Gold Bond powder helping. Apparently, it is the menthol in the powder. She used extra strength. I am mentioning this because it might be something to try. I shall do so if my GD returns.

That’s interesting as my zinc oxide has menthol in it. It is 0.44% rather than Gold Bond’s 0.8% but it seems to help. The one time I tried a different brand of zinc oxide without menthol and with balsam of Peru, it was a disaster.

So there could be something to that!

I just bought my Gold Bond powder yesterday. It does make a bit of a difference. Thanks for mentioning it.
