Diagnosed mid January. No biopsy. Two weeks later I stated with cilantro supplements, three a day. March 31st I switched to smoothies with cilantro. Grovers is gone although my skin still looks mottled. I use 1/4 bunch with almond milk, strawberries, blueberries, banana and a little protein powder. I keep thinking I may discontinue to see what happens but the smoothie is great for my digestive process and it has become a ritual I look forward to. I hate the taste of cilantro but am almost afraid to stop, especially since now the temps are 111+ in Arizona.

I like what you are doing. When you compile all the results will you please share so we can all give to our respective dermatologists?

@frogger I try to remember to take Biotin, Occuvite for eyes and chlorella ( look up health benefits) . I always take Vitamin C, Vitamin D, CoQ10 and Mega Red fish oil. I probably don't need any of these but my heart is great and I am healthy. Don't ever get colds (fingers are crossed.)

@dazlin My dermatologist also prescribed triamcinolone in the beginning which I used to 10 day to temper the initial AWFUL stuff. Then I switched to cilantro in smoothies. Have been on them since January (ish, can't remember exactly). No more itching or outbreaks. Afraid to stop the cilantro. However, the benefits of the cilantro have been more than Grover's aid. My health is improved. All that fruit in the smoothie each morning aids digestion. I also add protein powder. My smoothie is almond milk, frozen banana, frozen strawberries, sometimes blueberries or peaches and the cilantro. One quarter bundle each time for me. And I HATE THE TASTE OF CILANTRO but it is expertly camouflaged in the smoothie. I freeze the quarter bundles.

@gardeningjunkie I am checking in to let all know that the cilantro is now a daily part of my life. I separate one bunch into four sections and freeze in baggies. (Depends on size of your bunch but my bunch is about 40 stems). I hardly taste it in my smoothie anymore because of all the liquid and fruit I add. I informed my dermatologist last month and he is researching it. (Smart doc.) Traveling for the next three weeks and have already made arrangements to have a blender with all the ingredients I need at my destinations since they are homes of relatives. Bringing pills just in case. Curious to know how @frogger does in Pacific Northwest. Picturing @gardeningjunkie turning green!!!! 🙂

The Web MD site says"Bleeding disorders: Cilantro might slow blood clotting. There is concern that cilantro might increase the risk of bleeding in people with bleeding disorders when eaten in large amounts." However Cilantro is high in Vitamin K, which promotes blood clotting, which is why those on coumadin have to regulate their dosage when taking cilantro. This is a contradiction. I believe the wise thing to do would be to not use cilantro in high dosages. Reduce the amount you use till you reach a comfortable balance. Everything is better in moderation. Blood clots or excessive bleeding are both negatives so it is is wise to discontinue all herbal supplements when facing surgery. Always be truthful about medications and supplements with your doctor.

I just read all about Vega on the internet. Be sure to read the negative reviews before purchasing. With all your allergies it may not be the right one for you.
