Sounds : Sounds like you might have either darier's disease or hailey-hailey? There are several treatments that can help for these conditions but no cure. There are some reports of laser being helpful for hailey-hailey. I would recommend you consider getting a second opinion so that you get a good idea of all the treatment options and better tips on managing this condition. I hope that helps!

There is no great: treatment for Grover's Disease as it recurs. topicals like retinoids and steroids seem to work best. sometimes cautery helps, and you can certainly try microdermabrasion but understand it can recur
