My mother is 81 y/o. She was diagnosed with Grovers Disease several years ago following a lengthy hospital stay. It has never abated. It is not only on her back & chest, but also on her limbs (except feet, hands, & face). The original diagnosis was made with a biopsy, a more recent biopsy confirmed that this is still the cause of her itchy rash & red spots. She sees a good derm doc but still suffers immeasurably with this. The itch is severe and continuous. She has tried prednisone, topical steroids (up to & including all forms of clobex), allergy meds, and light therapy. Nothing has worked.
Are there any other treatments available? Thanks, BeBe for Jenny
