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

I will now add Bengay to my endless list of creams and ointments. My out breaks have changed strangely. They used to be pretty much on my back and shoulders. Eventually they would disappear, only to move around to different areas. Now they have localized on my stomach, two very distinct rashes, and the itching is really intense, far worse than before. The discomfort is worst in the morning and just before I go to bed. Gardeningjunkie explained the reason for this several months ago. Also any contact with clothing, cotton or otherwise, seems to initiate and prolong it. I tried the Goldbond as well. Very temporary fix for me. Still do my smoothies once a day, religiously read this site, and pray that someday, someone will come up with a miracle, so we can all go back to normality. Lol. I thank everyone on this site for their input. We really are in this one together.

It's nice to learn from others with their experiences— appears that the symptoms and effective treatments vary much. My rash is confined to the torso all around and the intensity of itching changes frequently. Have been encouraged with the Witch Hazel, but it does not always eliminate the worst spells. One night I could not sleep for the itching and applied light coating of a generic 1% hydrocortisone cream which got me through the night. The dermatologists here in AZ seem mainly devoted to skin cancers and GD "is a rare disease w/ no cure"
