I consulted a doctor and he told me I am suffering from dermatographic urticaria. A biopsy was performed on my hand then got to know that my chronic hand rash is granuloma annulare (GA). I have severe itching at the site where GA shows up. I have been suffering for many years with it. For the past ten years, it was only present on my left hand. But, now it has started on my right hand too. After lot of research, got to know that GA is neither a life threatening condition nor contagious and generally disappears by itself. But, in my condition, it has not disappeared. After consulting a physician, I have tried many creams to reduce the itching as well as to dissipate the GA and nothing seems to be working. I even tried with few home remedies. I drank 2 oz daily of apple cider vinegar. First time it showed some benefit. But, later it did not work. Lastly, I tried with Lidocaine cream too, but no positive result. I am very worried and concerned. I am attaching the pictures for your reference. Please suggest me a good and effective treatment plan that will work for my condition. Thank you in advance.
