So sorry to hear about your GD diagnosis. Our MD prescribed steroid based cream and ointment, and we supplement with Gold Bond anti-itch and eczema lotions. My wife initially had outbreaks in breast area, and now has spread to other parts of body- I sincerely hope yours stays confined to the one area. Another possible treatment that may be the best is UV light treatment- after 10-12 treatments it is significantly abated if not gone.

My wife and I contracted GD from some external unknown source, and has confounded 3 different Dermatologist. We are scheduling the light treatment in the coming weeks.

Planning to begin within the next 1-2 weeks, or as soon as I can get in!

I was diagnosed with GD about 9 months ago, starting on my inner thighs, and now has spread from head to feet. The symptoms started with my wife itching, and 2 weeks later I had the same itching, and continued to track her itching to chest, back, and arms. Although the dermatologists are certain GD is not contagious, they cannot explain how we both have it (also eliminated scabbies). We of course thought it must be contact dermatitis, we changed bed, clothes, furniture, detergents, soap, food, etc., and had no effects. The itchy areas mostly do not have bumps or a rash associated, just terrible itching. TAC .1%, Eczema lotions with oatmeal provide only temporary relief, as do hot showers. Our next step is to try UV light treatments, as a close MD friend found this to be very effective.
