Granuloma Annulare: Any ideas for treatment?
I have been diagnosed with Granuloma Annulare.Started out with 2 or 3 places on my arm and now have some on my legs. New places are continuing to crop up.
I have tried several steroidal creams but nothing seems to make them disappear. While there is no discomfort, it is not too appealing to look at.
Any ideas for treatment would be appreciated.

I have had this condition for 25 years now. It first started out as a small spot on the top of my foot and over the last 25 years has spread all over my legs and upper arms. It is unsightly but causes no pain. Everything I have read on this all says the same–no know cause and no real cure. I’ve been to several doctors with all the same results. They say with some people, it will go away but mine has never gone away. I have taken the attitude that “it could be worse” !
Unsightly is the key word. You sound like you have a very good attitude about this.Do you wear clothes to cover up or do you even worry about it? I just get tired of people asking “what’s that?” Also, where I live, its hard to cover up when its so blooming Hot. Thanks for your reply. May God bless you richly!
I have been diagnosed with granuloma annulare. My type is generalized which is the largest and hatdest to treat or go away. It is itchy and uncomfortable and ugly. It is very tramatic for me. Any cures or treatments?
Hi @samhrdy. The Mayo Clinic patient education states “In most cases, no treatment is necessary for granuloma annulare. Most lesions disappear within a few months, and rarely last more than two years.” And offers treatments if the rash bothers you.
I can imagine it is traumatic. How long have you been managing this? What helps soothe the itchiness for you?

Hi @selmanahem and welcome to Connect!
I wnated to introduce you to @hchristopher who has mentioned having granuloma annulare in the past and may be able to offer support.
How long have you been diagnosed with this? How are the symptoms?
I have this problem, diagnosed 6 weeks ago. I am looking for alternative treatments because the dermatologist hasn't helped much. It is on the top
of my foot.
