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

JustMeMyself- The zinc oxide ointment I ordered on the internet is in a 16oz jar, Rugby. No fragrance: active ingredient zinc oxide 20%, inactive just mineral oil and petrolatum. I avoid all products with fragrances and Balsam of Peru is a big no no for many.
Would you tell us the name of the .44 % zinc oxide you use with and menthol? That could also be helpful for my husbands jock itch which he gets once the summer heat kicks in.

@gardeningjunkie – The cream is Zinc-Oxide Plus by First Aid Research Corp (no big brand name).

When it comes to mercury, Dr Dantzig is actually a dermatologist connected with Columbia University. Some people with terrible persistent cases on the Skin Cell forum reached out to his office when they finally found a doctor locally willing to listen. Reportedly, his office boasts over a 90% cure/treatment rate via testing for mercury and using Chemet (a DMSA) to treat. Chemet is strong and will clear our everything — not just mercury — so it may not be specific to that one heavy metal. But between his success and cilantro, there appears to be a decent correlation to heavy metal toxicity or at least an individual’s natural ability to excrete those toxic substances. There was one woman with persistent GD for 10 years who had hers clear up with his protocol and it has not returned (although she periodically has to go back on Chemet as her body accumulates heavy metals and she routinely tests high).

On an unrelated note, has ANYONE had a dermatologist that is anything other than indifferent or interested in doing more than the usual lazy prescribing of steroids, etc.? I’m typically a supporter of science and following your doctor’s advice but the utter disinterest in — admittedly anecdotal — cheap treatments that don’t do any harm (cilantro, zinc oxide, etc.) or investigating the possibilities presented by Dr. Dantzig is disheartening.
