What is Grover's Disease?
Grover's disease, also known as transient acantholytic dermatosis or Grover's Rash, is a skin disease characterized by red, itchy spots appearing on the back and upper chest. They can last for months and never appear again, or go off and on for years. This is more common in older men with a history of high sun exposure, but it is believed to be caused by blockages in the sweat glands in the upper layers of skin. The cause of Grover's disease is still clinically unclear, but having dry skin increases the risk, and is commonly seen in hospital patients who are lying on their backs for extended periods of time. Symptoms of Grover's disease include small, but very itchy, red bumps

|BETTER BUT NOT CURED (2)||100%|
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] I have Grover Skin rash and just went to the doctor yesterday, she saw that I was really flared up on my chest and stomach area. I have really struggled with this disease. I have the prescription creams and they only seem to keep it at bay. However she recommended to me to try the Virgin Coconut oil, after every shower. I am on day three of this and I know its a little early but it seems to be really helping with the itching, Also the redness is starting to go away.
