Grover's Disease

From the Colorado Dermatology Institute in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Daily Do of Dermatology - Title

Video Transcript:

So here’s another “Daily Do” from your friendly local dermatologist.

All right, so what’s Grover’s disease? Because it’s something that sounds like it should be on Sesame Street, right? But it’s something that actually causes a lot of discomfort to a lot of people. Now mostly Grover’s Disease happens to men who are 50-plus, and usually on the trunk. And what it looks like is little dots of red, dry acne. Now, it’s not acne, but that’s kind of what it looks like. And it gets irritated and bothered. And so the more you sweat and the hotter it is outside, and the more clothes that are irritating, and the tighter the clothes, all of it will kind of aggravate this area, and it will become very itchy, dry and bothersome.

What You Can Do

So the things that you can do to help keep it at bay is one, have a good diet. Two, exercise, three, treat yourself and your neighbors well, and four, is lots of moisturizers, Because if we can at least take the dry component out of this, that will limit one of the major contributing factors. The next is don’t wear really tight clothing. Don’t sweat excessively or participate in activities that will make you sweat excessively. Don’t wear wool and other types of clothes that will bother everybody’s skin. 

And seek a dermatologist’s help, because we oftentimes can give you a little bit of topical prescription medication to help you get through this, so it’s not affecting your life.
