Wed, Apr 24 1:07pm · Grover's disease in Skin Health

Hey Cilantro group, I got back from Jamaica and the chef had cilantro waiting for me at the resort! I ate it raw all week! My Grover's only broke out after working out. It healed quickly. I ate it raw morning and night. Now that I am back home I make a smoothie with cilantro, a banana, 3-4 strawberries, almond milk, and 1-2 tablespoons of peanut butter. The smoothies definitely taste better than raw, but raw is doable! My rash is 80-90% gone.

I contacted the resort and they have fresh cilantro! They made note in my file and will make it available to me! So relieved! Thanks for the suggestion @gardeningjunkie

Thank you! Could you tell me the exact kind you bought?

@gardeningjunkie I am traveling to Jamaica next week and I don't know if they'll have fresh cilantro for me to pick up. I also don't know if I can travel with it. Have you tried cilantro vitamins or vitamin A or anything else that works as well as or close to as fresh CILANTRO? My outbreak is much improved and I'd hate for it to fully come back on my trip. Thank you!

@kimass1 Do you know if dried cilantro works? Have you tried it? I will be going on vacation and I am wondering if I could bring a bottle of that. Thanks for sharing your success. My GD has significantly improved!

@frogger I have recently tried the cilantro and I didn't think much of it until I stopped and my Grover's got worse. I am back to putting cilantro in my morning smoothie and then I eat a bunch more
raw before dinner. It seems to have taken the redness and itchiness away but the bumps are still there yet smaller. As for exercising, I've noticed the harder I work out with exertion, the worse my Grover's is. I have to shower with cool water right after. Wearing the right kind of clothing to wick the sweat helps me. Maybe in time with continuing to eat cilantro, my Grover's will be less after workouts. Good luck! I've also begun light therapy.
