Herbal Remedies - Do They Work?I am a 44 year old female - I have had this disease all my life - I remember having the rash at 15. I live in Australia and it looks like, as an 80s teenager, when tanned was cool - that I might have overdone it. My Grovers has flared up badly over the last 12 months. I have the rash under my breasts, down my back, on both thighs and calves, and on both arms, sometimes up my neck. The itch is incredible. I have been misdiagnosed numerous times, before my Dr finally sent a biopsy and had it confirmed 100% - I have spent a fortune on pills and potions that don't work, including the antibiotic/cortisone treatments. Now the dermatologist is talking about Phototherapy (which I am not sure I can afford) or oral retinoids (which are known to damage kidneys and liver) Anything which causes that much harm can't be good for you. I have naturally oily skin so putting something like coconut oil on my skin just makes me shine, but I am willing to try anything. I have read online about the promises of Graveton, Vegnofax and Gorvical - I am naturally skeptical of some of the amazing claims they all make. Do they actually work? I would like to hear from real people with real stories - not planted testimonials.
Also has anyone tried a nautropath or homeopathic treatment with good results?
