Grover’s disease can usually be treated using topical medications, but sometimes requires oral medication, injections, or light therapy to treat it.
- Cortisone cream: Your dermatologist will prescribe you a cortisone cream if you have a small blister or outbreak that doesn’t itch.
- Tetracycline: If you have larger outbreaks that itch and cover the entire trunk, your dermatologist may prescribe the antibiotic tetracycline or Accutane orally for one to three months.
- Antihistamines: Doctors may also give you antihistamines to stop the itching. This treatment method may be their first choice if you’ve experienced outbreaks of Grover’s rash in the past.
- In severe cases: If the above-mentioned treatments do not seem to be effective, then you may need further treatment that includes retinoid pills, antifungal medication, cortisone injections and topical application of selenium sulfide.
- PUVA phototherapy: This phototherapy is used to treat severe cases of Grover’s. First, you’ll take psoralen pills, which make the skin more sensitive to ultraviolet light. Then you’ll stand in a lightbox to undergo UV radiation.
