This is cynical, but I believe the dermatologists I go to are uninterested in our home remedy treatments which for some of us have worked because these are not prescriptions and because no scientist has studied them. I wrote up a record of my success with cilantro: dosing, describing the length of time it took to go into remission. I also included others success stories from this site as well as the Earth Clinic site. Even though she tells me she only sees a few cases of GD a year I thought she would be excited and would share this information with other doctors.
I went back in 6 months for a non GD issues and saw her husband (both are dermatologists). I asked him if he had heard of others having success using cilantro to treat GD. He had no idea what I was talking about. Evidently his wife had never even discussed it with him or had him read what I wrote up. You might question why I still use her, but to her credit she was the first doctor out of several others that I had seen that figured out that I had GD. She took one look and recognized it, others were treating is as Allergic Contact Dermatitis. Not that any of her classic GD treatments helped but at least now I had a name for this rash and could research it.
