Granuloma Annulare - I was diagnosed with GA approx.4 years ago. No cure, no help, no understanding just disheartening.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I have been dealing with this for 4+ years with no answers. What started as a small dot the size of a dime on my shin has now grown into 30+ dots of all sizes. I have been to a dermatologist and the Mayo Clinic. I was told there is no cure, it should go away within 3 to 5 years. I have tried every steroid cream, every topical ointment you can think of and even changed my diet. Some of these dots lighten and disappear only to multiply and show up in other places. I found a group on Facebook with similar if not worse cases then mine and read different experiments that people have tried what works on one does not work on others. It is a puzzle to determine what makes them aggravated compared to what calms them down. I live in Arizona the heat is extreme and wearing shorts in public messes with you physically and emotionally. As a group we need answers. Please help.
