Had Grover’s since January 1 but biopsy in February made it official. Itching was so horrible that I could not sleep. Got on Mayo Clinic discussion group, found out about cilantro, began taking and it cleared up within 10 days.
I take cilantro by 2 methods. First is a cilantro, yogurt and orange juice smoothie every morning. Secondly I take a cilantro capsule three times per day.
For one 5 day period (on trip) I took only capsules and did not break out. After 6 months I am back to running in Texas heat. Have had small outbreak of red bumps on back but no pain, no itching at all. One of these days I’m going to try weaning myself off cilantro just to see if I break out but that’s several months down the road.
