I was diagnosed with Granuloma Annulare in my early 20's and am now 31. I started with a 2 inch round red lesion under the skin on the top of my left foot. I have no symptoms other than it looks bad. The lesions are now on the inside and outside of both my ankles and I have small ones starting on my knees. I didn't think I had this disease because most pictures I saw were showing raised lesions and talked about symptoms of soreness but a biopsy confirmed it. :( I have been taking UVA light therapy at the hospital. It's a neat little machine for hands or feet. Initially 5 days a week begining at 3 minutes and gradually up to 10 minutes. It did work in that my lesions used to be mostly solid red/purple but now there are normal skin colored spots in most of the lesions. As it has gotten better and b/c the dermatologist wants to limit the UVA exposure I went down to 3 days/wk and now 2 days/wk. She now has me using cylcocort cream to speed up the process. Something to try anyways.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
