Granuloma Annulare Home Remedies

Gluten-Free

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!

Jason, the Granuloma Annulares still pop up but we can treat them naturally instead of with steroids, which is a positive. She has had a few GAs develop into the ring shape but generally I catch them now before they progress to that point. We're currently on day 2 of having her drink ACV twice a day so I'm hoping for great things on that end. I've been drinking ACV for months and it really helps with my arthritic hands.

I had posted earlier about ACV how it helped my wifes GA., only 5mg of Pregnenolone daily skipping weekends almost completely relieved her of pretty severe GA. It has been 5 months and she is still clear. Pregnenolone is a master hormone 5mg is a very low dose. This is available over the counter. Good Luck

Hey congrats on helping with the GA's! I am currently on night 3 of the topical Apple Cider Vinegar regimen. I was wondering if your daughters GA has come back since her last ACV treatment? Also, how severe was her GA? Did she have a ring? Thank you for your response!!

I will definitely try this. Even though its not contagious I still don't like the way it looks and sometimes it spreads to my son's (6 yrs old) fingers as well.

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.

Just wanted to let you know, for granuloma annulare I have tried vit e mix with tea tree oil, apply 2-3 times a day works great. My son had it and doctor said because he is so young there is nothing he can give him. So this is what I did, as I said it worked great. Hope it helps someone!!!

MANY thanks!! I've been doing quite a bit of reading on alkalinity and so forth, and will try the ACV/honey/baking soda. Will post back when I have something to report! Thanks again.

Tabby-- You can take it either with food or on an empty stomach. Topically is fine-- won't hurt a thing. BTW, my coworker told me that you can buy a gallon jug of plain old ACV (from a grocery store) and put 1/4 cup or so of ORGANIC ACV (from the health food store) in it and let it sit a few weeks till the sediment (it's known as "the mother") begins to grow in the cheap vinegar and that way you can make your own for way less $$$.

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!!!

Regarding ACV for Granuloma Annulare - should it be taken with food? On an empty stomach? Applies topically as well? I have a LONG-standing case of GA (20 years now) and am about will to try anything to get rid of it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

My husband has GA and started the ACV 3 weeks ago after I told him about your post. Most of his rashes have faded to very light pink, and he has hopes of them completely disappearing in a short amount of time. He has had it a couple years, but had no interest in taking steroids to try to get rid of it. This seems to be working for him. Thanks for sharing!

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
