Like Karen from PA below, I have been taking an herbal 5 mushroom compound for about 2 months and the GA has really faded and even cleared up in most places.

I had GA since 12yo. It got worse as I aged.

At 63 I found that it was exacerbated by alcohol and caffeine so I stopped and it SLOWLY got better but never fully went away. So now I'm taking about 2,000mg of vitamin C daily and that really helped... I drink wine and coffee without worry. get VC and take it throughout the day ALL DAY. I bought cheap C at walmart and break the 1000mg pills in two. Sometimes I just take the entire 1000 mg.

My husband has had GA for 12 plus years. He has tried eliminating certain things from his diet over periods of time.

His most recent elimination was peanuts and peanut oil (which means no eating out at his favorite chicken restaurant). His GA cleared up within 2 weeks. If you have this condition, then you can imagine how HAPPY he is!! He recently went to his dermatologist and told him about his apparent peanut connection. He just replied "Yes, it is an allergy of some kind but we never know what is causing it" Keep trying different things. I think it is more about something being eaten causing inflammation in the body. The problem is trying to figure out what it is for each person.

Hi Alyce,

based on your experience, possible /probable heavy metals in the injection have caused your skin problems, therefore some easily accessible coriander/cilantro will help with detoxing these toxins from your body, also chlorella but from health food store. Best to you.

Alyce,

My husband has GA, been to every doctor but still cannot find a cure. One day I was listening to Doug Kaufman show he said GA is a fungus. My husband likes to drink when he come home from work. I keep telling him that alcohol is a fungus but he will not listen. So he suffers.. Maybe you can find the fungus that is causing GA. alcohol, corn, peanuts rice, some breads. Do not forget external like Heinz original apple cider vinegar, made from corn.

Thanks to all for your posts. I found them all very interesting. I was diagnosed Celiac (blood tests) November, 2018. This precipitated a Gluten Free Diet, which I started immediately. My Doctor gave me numerous pages of ingredients to eliminate from my food intake. The usual Wheat Barley, Rye and all their derivatives (which are numerous), where on these lists. As soon as I went on the GF diet, I started to get a rash on my upper thighs and arms. Biopsies showed Granuloma Annulare. Never, had any rashes before this. I am 80 years old.

Initially, I went on Corticosteroid creams. That made the situation worse. I also started on ACV, ( organic, with the Mother). that did not help me, it only gave me an acidic stomach. That went away as soon as stopped the ACV. I am eating probiotics like Kimchi, and Sauerkraut. That has helped the Celiac enormously. Counts have gone down from 253 to 93 so far. I am very strict in what I eat.

However, the GA is doing it's own thing. It is now all over my body. It never did itch, hurt or ache, it doesn't matter what I eat (only GF foods) or not eat, it is JUST THERE!! Celiac is an Autoimmune Disease. GA is also classed as an Autoimmune condition. It responds to what you put into your “MOUTH”. It's not what you put ON TOP of your skin that really helps, It's what you put into your gut system, (food, or so called FOOD).

I have tried numerous creams and ointments on my body, hoping that the rash would somehow subside, This has not happened yet. I try to not eat STUFF that is not real food and right now, that doesn't seem to help either. I feel that all those derivatives in the GF food may be responsible for my Granuloma Annulare.

I am now trying the CBD Oil (Hemp FX, legally available in Alberta and Canada). Have been using the salve and ointment now for only 5 days. I don't see any improvement at all.

MY Dermatologist has suggested numerous procedures, I have refused them. I am completely convinced that this is STILL about “what I put into my mouth”. Until I diagnose what that is, I feel that this GA will consume my entire body surface area. Like I've mentioned, the Gluten Free Food has so many unknowns in their products, one cannot figure out what they are. From Cellulose, (wood dust, chips) to tartizine, (coal tar) to other undecipherable's, along with the pesticides that are sprayed on almost all foods, before they are harvested, to Glyphosate sprayed on grain products. The Liver and the Skin are two organs that tell us what is going on inside our bodies. I am still convinced that the Gut System is also a good indicator.

I have had numerous tests which are all normal. If this CBD Salve doesn't help, I MAY try Sea Buckthorn Oil, and eatable Hemp Seeds, which I have eaten in the past years.

I may also add that on Oct. 25th, 2018, I had a Pneumococcus injection, and to this day, I feel that may also be what brought on the rash!!!

This is my story and I'm sticking to it.
Thanks.
Alyce.

Noxema

My daughter has been struggling with GA since right before her Type 1 Diabetes diagnosis in 2012. Hers is on her lower legs, so it can be hidden with pants or long socks, but she still is self conscious about it. We somehow decided to try Noxema on it a few years ago. The spots, which were large, deep, and very red are now mostly skin colored and look more like scars. Some spots have disappeared and all remaining ones are much smaller and lighter. She puts the Noxema on before bed when she thinks of it (she's a teen so consistency is not at it's finest) and just leaves it on. She also has vitamin E oil she puts on as well.

While this remedy seems to be working at a snail's pace, it is working. At the rate of improvement we are seeing, hopefully in a few years her legs will be all clear.

Adrienne,

Since you have not gotten a response about the enzymes, I wanted to tell you that our family has had very good results from an enzyme blend called Neprinol by Arthur Andrew Medical. We followed the instructions on the label. You should take them on an empty stomach, or two hours after a meal.

I have had GA for almost 20 years. It started out as a small red bump on my knee and is now on every part of my body (feet (T & B), legs, upper body front and back, chest, arms, shoulders, and head, except my face). It always starts out as a small bump that gets bigger then joins another one until it is a huge one. Right now both of my legs and arms are almost completely red or some shade between pink and red. I have gone to several doctors but the only thing I have been given is ointments so thick it was too painful to rub on. I am so thankful I found this posting! I am going to the store today to get some ACV in hopes it will work for me. The GA is creeping up my neck and spreading so fast I am thinking of canceling Christmas this year and will if the ACV doesn't work. Prayers to all of you!!!

My husband has had GA for years. He tried everything but the best by far was using a hair dryer on his arms where the GA is located. It has taken a few months but a few of the rings have disappeared. This is not a quick cure all.

This information is from Doug Kaufman on "Know the Cause" on youtube.

My problem began after I cut my right index finger knuckle on a piece of sharp glass (drying a drilling glass and it broke). The granuloma annulare began in that injury then traveled up and down my index finger and then toward my thumb. That cleared up unexpectedly then showed up in the knuckle of my left middle finger where no injury had ever occurred. My husband has been using food grade 30% (@?) hydrogen peroxide and so I dabbed some on my a.g. each day and it began to go away. It has almost disappeared. First remedy that I have tried and it worked!

After 1 year of my husband having the worst case of GA the dermatologist had seen and after being ask d to attend a Dermatological convention for further consultation which had no results, he starting taking a supplement for candida made of multiple enzymes (Amylase, Cellulase,Glucoamylase,Hemicellulase ,Invertase, L-Leucine) which is an enzyme therapy with no side effects.

In days my husband stopped itching(he was itching constantly) and after 5 days his GA is disappearing and he feels so much better. I believe that this condition may be related to Candida. We tried numerous remedies after the usual steroid treatments did not work such as coconut oil, tea tree oil, apple cider vinegar, colloidal silver and though these helped relieve symptoms and did help some of the spots lessen, the disease persisted. It is a relatively inexpensive supplement.

Hi all, I have suffered from this dreaded skin condition for coming up on 9 yrs now, I have the generalised, going from my shoulders, down to my shins, arms, legs, back, front.

It is embarrassing, and I don't like to show my body to anyone, because of it. I have had all the treatments medically you could think of, from PUVA, to freezing them, to all the oral medications, and cortizone creams, and nothing has worked, though some of them took this dreaded condition away whilst I was on the medication, as soon as I stopped, it came back. I have given up on seeking medical help now, as its a waste of my money, nothing is working, and it seems to be spreading, my whole stomach is just full of red lumps.

I have read some suggestions, and will give ACV a go, but I won't hold my breath, thats for sure, just getting so frustrated that nothing has worked, and I have been battling this for 9 yrs.

I am also going to try Acupuncture, at a point now where I will give anything a go.

I am wondering if anyone can tell me, if they know if maybe surgery may have started this, I had an operation on my ankle 10 yrs ago, involving pins and plates and screws, just wondering if this may be a starting point for this condition in my case.

Cheers Dee.

I've been living with GA for 5 years now from my neck to my toes. It developed immediately after an operation, but of course doctors said it wasn't related. My dermatologist has had me on light treatment, ointments, clobetasol, steroid creams. I've been on prednisone, plaquenil and dapsone for 5 years which are the only meds that keep it under control and from me tearing my itchy skin off. I'm tested constantly and for diabetes (obviously because of the prednisone and plaquenil which can affect my retina) but so far so good. It started to go away so I started to lessen the doses, but it came back with a vengeance. I'm so glad I came across this site, since my next step was to go to Boston Medical, but afraid that will just mean more meds. As soon as I post this, I'm going to try the ACV. I'm sure willing to try anything that is a lot healthier than medication.

When I was around 21-22 (8 or 9 years ago), I developed a hard wee bump on my knee. It hurt when I knocked it but otherwise didn't affect me. I went to the doctors maybe 6 months after I first noticed it start to grow in diameter. My Dr had never seen GA before but knew of it due to a family member of his having it. From then on it was assumed it had GA. It grew into a 2cm round ring of raised bumps that further concern me so again I went to another Dr who used liquid nitrogen on it which did nothing other than leave a horrible scar. I gave up trying any more treatments as I was told it wasn't any. Over the years the GA on my knee has flattened out looks less red and sore but I now have GA on my elbows. The hardest part about it being on my elbows is every single time I put my elbows on a table or hard surface the pain is enough to drop The Hulk. My description of the pain would be similar to that of kneeling down hard on a sharp stone. It subsides reasonably quick but wow it's sore straight after. I'm super excited to try the ACV topically and if that doesn't work I'll try it orally. I can't wait to see if this actually works. Feeling hopeful :)

My husband has the localized variety, I guess, on his hands and elbows. It appeared suddenly as bumps, one day last summer, after he came home from work outdoors. Since then, the bumps became spreading red rings. He also has diabetes, for which he started taking iodine internally again almost a month ago, having lapsed for about a year and noticed a significant difference in his health. Interestingly, the iodine seems to be helping reduce the size of the GA patches. He started out at 3 drops and increased to 9-12 drops of 7% Lugol's Solution iodine in divided doses twice/day, mixed with about 6-8 oz. water each time. He's going to increase to 18 drops and see if it takes care of it completely. I'll post an update with results.

I have had GA going on 8 years. I was in what I call remission for the past 2 years after being prescribed Accutane. I was unable to complete the full three mths of medication, due to high triglycerides. However the GA did disappear for two years. It has recently returned. I will not take anymore steroids be it cream or oral medication. While taking the steroids I became Diabetic. I went through several Doctors ( Dermatologists ) not to mention the Internists and General MDs. I have taken leprosy meds, steroids, and more topical creams than I can remember, steroid and non-steroid. I would love to try a natural remedy before taking the Accutane again. Suggestions???

None of his trys did a thing for me. My legs, arms, hands, abdomen and back are affected. Mine keeps getting worse. First appeared in September. Researching it and my Dr. said individuals with diabetes are more likely to get it. I have Type 1. It also says it is an inflammatory process. I am trying to follow a diet that is "clean" no sugar and minimal processed foods. I'm also going to get Turmeric which is suppose to help the immune system. I am going to try all of the suggestions. I was wondering if essential oils might help. I'm ready to try anything and look forward to all suggestions.

Hi, I know your post is old but I was wondering if ACV helped your GA at all. I have had it for several years. The further down my body it goes, the darker and more unsightly it is. My legs are a real mess which makes it very uncomfortable when going south to resorts. I am leaving for Cuba in 2 weeks and will have to just grin and bear it. I started drinking 1 Tbls of ACV diluted in a glass of water twice a day. It has only been 5 days but not too optimistic. Thanks

Cause of Granuloma Annulare may be systemic Candida.

I have had granuloma annulare on my hands for about 25 years now (see picture). It was only on one hand for many years, then seemed to have travelled up to my fingers and it became prevalent on my left hand as well. It's as if it moved/shifted. When I bumped it, it hurt.

About 2 months ago, I had a blood panel done and it was found that I had Systemic Candida (Albicans) which was contributing to many painful problems in my stomach area. It has been about 5 weeks now since I've been on an Anti-Candida diet (as well as a diet for my Leaky Gut) and I can truly say that almost all of my Granuloma Annulare has cleared up on both hands! At least you really have to look hard to see it.

Just wanted to encourage others that if they have granuloma annulare, go get a blood panel done for Candida Albicans. If it shows >1, then you may have Systemic Candida.

My nutritionist said that most everyone she meets that has an auto-immune disease almost always has Systemic Candida, but not every Systemic Candida patient has an auto-immune disease...not yet.

She said doctors don't know much about Candida, so they miss it altogether. I really felt that this is the key to my health problems and feel much better, although it's very tough for me to stick out this diet for 2 months.

I hope this helps everyone suffering with this same strange phenomenon. God bless.

I have had granuloma Annulare now for 3 years. Started on my stomach and went to my arms and hand. It's a very frustrating skin problem. I always go back to what I was doing when it started. I started taking garden of life herbal products and within 3 days it just appeared. I didn't really think too much about it because the store claimed my skin breakouts was part of detoxing. And I switched products and used other brands. I also did apple cider vinegar. I also take adderall for addhd.

I find if I stay off herbs and acid foods, it goes away. And alcohol makes it even worse. I am going to go on a anti fungal diet and see how that goes. Dr kaufman on you tube has a the diet available. Does anyone else have a problem loosing weight with this?

Hello everybody ... I have had GA for about ten years it developed after Hep B innoculations (I work in a Hospital). A good friend also has GA and is a nurse - also had Hep B innocs. I was taking cider vinegar long before GA appeared (I also tried Puva, nothing topical works) ACV is good for so many things I was taking it for joint stiffness and depression. I have to report that when I am away and don't take ACV - the GA shows up even more (evident most of the time anyway) It is extensive, armpits, inside area of arms, shoulders, tops of thighs and backs of knees and right across the tummy. Great!! I only take ACV in the morning but am going to increase to the evening too - I take it in hot water - maybe it shouldn't be diluted? I don't want to avoid Gluten and be ceoliac (! ) I love my bread....

I am 60 yrs old and have have had GA for over 20 years. I also have tried a lot of creams and oils and I want to warn people about the dangers of the steroid creams. Please never use them on your children and never use them too long on yourself. I didn't pay attention and now the skin on the backs of my hands is very thin and easily torn and very sensitive. I have had from severe to mild over the years and 1 thing I have noticed is it seemed to get worse when my skin is dry. Since I started using regular coconut oil to moisturize it seems to really help. I don't know anyone else with this condition so I was delighted to find this site! Thanks for all your tips!

A naturopath I consulted in April advised me that GA was an autoimmune disease due to leaky gut and to avoid dairy, sugar, potato and all gluten, e.g. wheat, barley, rye, all grains. I thought it would be ok to have buckwheat, amaranth, but no. Next stage to avoid legumes.

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?

Jeanette, I was diagnosed with GA a little over three years ago. It started out as 2 backwards C shapes on the back of my hands. I went to my family physician and he did a biopsy to confirm that it was GA. He gave me a topical steroid to put on the spots. They continued to spread even when I put the cream on with Saran Wrap and tape, and slept like that. Finally I went to a dermatologist, who injected the spots directly and gave me a antibiotic cocktail. It got rid of it, but of course it came back. After year 1 my glucose was 100. The highest normal reading. The next year, it was 102. My doctor didn't feel it was anything to worry about. Year 3 it was 123. They ran a A1C test and it was 7.6. The highest normal reading is 5.7. I am now a full blown diabetic. I currently am on 2 different medications and 1 for neuropathy. My sugar levels are still all over the place, despite my best efforts with my diet. I feel my doctor should have ran the A1C test when my glucose was 100. Perhaps I could have been diagnosed pre diabetic and been able to get things under control then. My GA is so far out of control now that I wear long sleeves in 95 degree weather, sweating to death, because it is so bad. People at stores would throw my change back at me to make sure they didn't touch me because everybody thinks it is Ringworm. I'm going to try the ACV topically and orally. Watch those glucose readings.

I have had this for about 3 years now.

My Dermatologist gives me a low dose steroid shot in the rear, and I then go for a few sessions of UV at the tanning parlour. This clears it up for 6 months or more.
