I have just registered on this board. I am a 61 year old women who developed a small patch of GA on my left hand four years ago. That was it for three years, but last winter more spots started to appear. I saw a dermatologist for three visits. Each time he prescribed a different treatment each visit. The last med prescribed was Clobex spray. I used it and some of the GA disappeared. However, it came back and new places have come also. I read the leaflet which states that Clobex should only be used for a maximum of four weeks. The derm. gave me a prescription for several refills. Has anyone used this steriod for a longer period of time than the one month? And what were the results?

Thanks in advance for your help.

I'm thankful to be in general good health, but this stuff is REALLY ugly and I'd love to see it gone.
