Spotlight on Grover's Disease

Grover's disease is an uncommon skin disorder that primarily affects men of middle or older age. The hallmark sign of Grover's disease is a series of small, red, itchy areas on the trunk. The itching can become quite intense. Dermatologists consider Grover's disease to be a transient one, because it usually lasts six to 12 months before resolving. In some cases, however, a patient may suffer from the condition longer.

It isn't known exactly why some men develop Grover's disease. Some theories suggest that it may be related to sun damage, prolonged bed rest, and excessive heat or sweating—but these theories are unproven. Dermatologists can prescribe topical treatments to relieve the itching until the disease resolves.

Skin diseases can significantly affect your quality of life, but you don't have to suffer from itchy skin any longer. Call (866) 400-3376, and get help from the expert dermatologists at Advanced Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery.
