Here is an udate as I am itch free for 14 days as of this email:

Step 1 = Respiractin - find this product and take it 2 to 3 times daily it is amazing and is a product of Canada, it simply works.

Step 2= use peroxide to clean the affected area 2 to 3 times a day.

Step=3= use willow balm pain lotion for the itch.

Step=4= your choice uva/uvb tanning 3 to 6 mins on the affected area.

And I am itch free and very happy, please look to the other post I submitted for the prescription cream I used in conjunction with this treatment. (note) I refuse to take oral meds as they are useless in my opinion and have way too many side effects. This was a 8 week struggle to find what worked for me and I am finally free of grovers. Thank god

I would like to be clear that my suggestions are just that and nothing more, I am not a doctor and I am not giving medical advise, simply sharing treatments that have worked for me..

I have not and will not take any oral medications, as I do not feel they work and have more than their share of negative side effects..

Treatments that work for me:

1. Willow balm for pain/ is still my go to for the itching and is amazing for stopping the itch.

(Cons) a bit strong smelling but I have smelled way worse..

(Note) Willow balm has product for itching but it is not as effective as the pain balm (it smells less strong).

2. Hydrogen peroxide to clean the affected area 2 to 3 times daily with triamcinolone 0.1% cream with willow balm 2 to 3 times daily.

(Cons) hydrogen peroxide can burn but it not the worst pain and use the peroxide after cleaning your skin..

3. Top choice for non-topical treatment is going to the tanning salon and using a uva /uvb stand up bed on the effected areas of my back and chest. I spend 4 to 6 mins 2 times a week and I am mostly itch free for 95% of the week.

(Cons) dermatologists get very unhappy about tanning. But since they have to personally deal with the non-stop itching day and night, I do not care what they think at this point. Tanning is the key to my dealing with gd. But keep in mind i am using a limited time to obtain a slight redding of my skin. Simply works for me.

I hope this helps as I have tried numerous products and this has been a blessing for me..
