    DD Treatment Re. 46 Years Of Darier's So Far

    This Dariers is always tagged as hereditary. (See treatment Accutane and Light Therapy notes below). This didn't seem to be the case for me. Doctors will say relatives could have had a VERY mild case~ but it doesn't matter. Best decision I made is to use Accutane (at 40mg a week...

    Darier'S Experiment

    In quotes below is pretty much what I put as an intro in the MDJunction Website rather than re-typing the whole thing in this site. However, I am trying a Gluten / Wheat free diet to see if that has any positive affect on the DD. I just wanted to let others with DD to be aware of...
