My 5 years old daughter is suffering form Granuloma Annulare from past 2 years. We used Apple Cider Vinegar externally for 5-6 days at night. It disappeared completely but after 3 months it appeared again, but not at the same spot, rather little away from it. Kindly suggest some remedy. Can we give her ACV orally?

I have been able to stop my Granuloma Annulare with a taking the Apple Cider Vinegar liquid 1 Tbs. two times a day 1 Tbs. of Silver Biotics each time. You can purchase the ACV and the Silver Biotics at GNC. I mix them with 1 Tbs. of orange juice so it doesn't taste as bad. I have been taking daily vitamins D3 1000 IU, Coenzyme Q10, Vitamin C, Echinacea, and Fish Oil. I bought all of these at Target. I take the dosages recommended on the bottle. I have also been drinking herbal green tea in the morning and Echinacea tea in the evening. I also put Cortizone 10 on the spots in the morning and at night. I still have some red spots but they seem to be fading away. This site was really helpful in getting me started getting over the Granuloma Annulare and wanted to share my recovery story. Thanks to all of you who shared your information about Granuloma Annulare!
I have had Granuloma Annulare for about 8 years. I went to doctors and went through the steroid treatments like many others. Treatments worked but GA comes back immediately. My GA is on my entire body except, luckily, not my face. I was desperate and returned to internet to see if anyone had found anything to cure GA. I came across this site and read where ACV had been the answer for some. I immediately began drinking 1 oz. in the morning and 1 oz. at night. It's been six weeks and I definately see a difference. I am very encouraged for the first time in years. I just know that this is going to be the answer. I look forward to reporting a 100% cure.
Our 5 year old daughter has GA and topically applying raw apple cider vinegar is the only thing that has worked to eliminate GAs. We did steroid shots the first two times GA popped up but that wasn't a long term solution! So thankful for ACV. I soak a cotton ball in ACV and use medical tape to fix it over the GA spot. We do that procedure for 3-4 nights and the GA is healed... Actually it looks like poison is drawn out and a scab forms. (A week later the scab is gone. ) Still, waaay better than steroids. We've checked into all known causes for GA over the past year (today we got back a clean bill of health from a CBC w/diff) and haven't uncovered anything.
I have had granuloma annulare for 9 years now. It began as a small patch on my left hand-- an ugly red rash, neither itchy nor painful. It has spread to the backs of both hands, up to my middle knuckles. The doc diagnosed it and said that it often is a precursor for diabetes, and that we'd keep an eye on it. Well, my favorite coworker in OKC introduced me to EarthClinic and I read about ACV. I drank it for a few months this past winter -- 1 Tbsp ORGANIC ACV with 1Tbsp honey, in warm water, morning and night. In spring, my coworker and my boss noticed that my GA had mostly disappeared! I hadn't even noticed! Oh, it's still there, but VERY much faded. I had to stop drinking the ACV because my teeth were beginning to hurt-- now I'm back on it but using a TINY pinch of baking soda in with the vinegar, let it fizz, then add warm water and the honey. I DEFINITELY recommend it. I don't know how long you will have to take it-- don't know how widespread or severe your GA is. Best of luck to you!!!
My wife developed severe Granuloma Annulare (GA) about 2 years ago on her arms, hands and chest. After visiting a dermatoligist she was prescribed prednesone which put it in remission. However when the Prednesone was stopped it started reapearing. This happened twice both times it reapeared. I read on a forum a dermatoligist had a patient who told her that ACV put his 35 year case of GA in remission 1 oz in the morning 1 oz at night. I know that's a lot of ACV but it worked. My wifes GA is vastly improved her arms and hands, chest are almost totally clean. It's been about a month since she started taking it but saw results in about 1 week. Good Luck

I've had great success curing the skin troubles of Granuloma Annulare by using DMSO topically. I apply it on a paper towel and then plastic wrap and hold in a few minutes until the burning sensation - as long as you can stand it, around 15 minutes. It's not really a burn, will subside next day. The bumps are usually gone. I had a huge ring it has mostly gotten rid of now. Will apply it when new bumps come and save myself the issue of watching these things grow large.
I am a 63 yr old female with generalized granuloma annulare for 15 yrs now. It began as 1 lesion above my left knee and several on the back of my neck. Of course I've seen multiple doctors in multiple disciplines and tried countless medications. The only somewhat effective treatment has been oral steroids which can only be used temporarily. Over the yrs the lesions have spread absolutely everywhere. Symmetrically on hands, feet, shins, forearms, elbows. Showed up, stayed for months, destroyed the collagen and moved on to torment the next location. For the past 5 yrs my entire torso, upper thighs, and the back of my neck have been solidly covered.
I've tried removing several possible dietary offenders with no success, UNTIL 3 wks ago when I went gluten free. I can't believe this! My skin is actually clearing up! This is the most wonderful thing. Why has no one tested me for gluten sensitivity in all these yrs?
HI, I have had this condition on and off for a few years got worse as I got older. Last year I had a flare up and not knowing what it was I suffered for months. I went to many Dr's no help. I slathered everything on me to no avail. I was finally told to try no gluten. (I also have a thyroid condition) Well no gluten, no rash!!! Just a thought to try. It took about a month for the rash to go away and if I eat gluten I immediately get a rash on my legs.
Hi all... I just had to pass on my success with getting rid of Granuloma Annulare. I had it for about 3 years. I can't say this will work for everyone, as many medical professionals think this could be related to Diabetes and Lupus as well.
Go Gluten-free. I tried everything prior to my discovery of my gluten-intolerance. I tried things such as blood tests for diabetes, lupus, celiac disease plus allergy prick tests. Nothing helped me until I got a stool test. This test showed a significant intolerance to wheat. Once I removed this completely from my diet (and you definitely have to read all food labels! ), it went away. It also seems I have an intolerance to almonds too. I think with all the almond products out there, my body doesn't quite like them either. The removal of these two things completely cleared my skin.
I hope this can help someone! Good luck!

I stumbled upon helichrysum oil trying to heal poor hearing. It is supposed to do marvelous things, so I put it on my hands where the Granuloma Annulare is. I put in on maybe 3-5 days in a row just before bed and it immediately went away with no scaring or anything. I have just noticed a small spot on my hand so I will use the oil again tonight and think it should be gone in a couple of days. It had remained gone originally for over 2 years.
In answer to the above people who have Granuloma Annulare, I also have the same for the last two years. I found a way to stop every spot in its tract. First I seen on the internet that the fungus travels between the two layers of skin. I bought a large container of hydrogren Peroxide 35 % food value and keep a small bottle about three quarters full in the bathroom along with a box of swabs. Upon going to bed I start with a swab and coat the spots two or three times each. It will burn a bit but only for a few minutes. I do this for three nights then watch them in a few days start to fad away. When coating the spots they will all turn white. I believe that the treatment is going through the first skin and and distroying the fungus. I 'm happy with the results I'm seeing, and now I'm looking for a way to remove the spots. Some where on this web page I seen that Walmart carry a product to remove the spots. I have a lot to be removed.

I have had GA for 4 yrs. my worst breakout was 3 yrs ago. I was living in Rocheste, Mn. At the time. I had it ALL over my body, on my neck creeping to my Face. The Mayo Clinic Derm's (4 of them), told me I was the worst case they had ever seen. I was given 2 drugs, doxycycline & hydrochoquin (sp.) I was to take for 3 months. I took them for 3 weeks & I broke out in secondary rash (all over my body now) I was a mess. I itched sooo bad I was in tears. I was put in the hospital for 2 days in wet wraps. I looked like a mummy.
I am now 65. It has been fading for almost 3 yrs. It started fading only after I was under the care of chiropractor. I had cortisone ointments, creams prednisone, injected cortisone shots & nothing worked. I also took ACV tabs & lysine, biotin&D3 supplements, nothing. I was told it was most likely brought on by stess. I also, had blood tests & a colonoscopy & nothing turned up unusual. That was 3 yrs ago. I still have lesion marks, on my arms legs, top of feet, & torso. I am doing ion detox foot baths, I have had 3 (1st one was 5 days ago) and I am amazed how much toxins are leaching out of my feet. The water was brownish black & had a fishy oder to it. Mostly liver & cell tissue. I am beginning to see my lesions fade even more..
For those of you who are adults, I would look into a reputable med spa & have the ion detox foot bath and also lymphatic drainage massage. Because toxins in your body are NOT good. Also, I have never smoked and occasionally will have wine or alcohol.
I will do the ion detox foot bath 2 more times, I am driving back to Mn. next week. I hope to find somewhere in the Twin Cities that do these. Also, @ the Med Spa in Parker its $30.00 a time..
P.s. This is a short version of this crap called Generalized disseminated Granuloma annulare.....
