I am researching alternatives to a chronic skin condition; granuloma annulare. I've had this conditions for many years and have been under a care of a dermatologist who has treated me with topical steriod creams and sprays. All research I've done on this condition clearly states that there are no treatments or cures. It is an unslightly condition, however, there are no known side effects. I've been told that the rash itself can last years (which it has) and disappear on its own. This is my 3rd outbreak although the last 2 times have been localized (on only my hand). This is different in that it is now generalized. Mostly on my back. I have some breakouts on my stomach, legs and arms. Nothing on my face (thank G'd for small favors). I do have a twin sister who also has this condition.
