Grover's Disease


Grover’s Disease has many names including Transient Acantholytic Dermatosis,benign popular acantholytic dermatosis and Persistent Acantholytic Dermatosis. Another much-despised name is “Itchy Red Bump of Old Man Disease”---describing the fact that this condition is often seen in older men (50+). Despite this fact, women also develop Grover’s disease. Both sexes generally get it starting in their 40s up into the geriatric years.

The Itch that Drives you Crazy:

Grover’s disease is often extremely itchy---so itchy that is can disrupt your work, play, family and sleep. The cause of Grover’s disease is hotly debated, but Dr Eberting believes it is strongly related to deficiency of the lipids in the skin.
