Hi! I am posting this in the hopes that it might help some of you out there who suffer from GA. I have had GA sense I was a little girl. I had it first on my ankle then it went to my back. My mom took me to the dermatologist and when they finally found out what it was they gave me some cream and it went away my mom said, I was really little so I don't remember much of it except going to the dermatologist. Anyway it stayed away for a really long time until I was about 23 yrs old. It came back on my back and on my stomach. I starting using a steroid cream which it help but the spots would only stay away for a short time. Then I started to lay in the tanning bed and the spots went away and stayed away until after I had my second son at 25 yrs old. It came back this time under the top part of my arms and really bad on my right foot and on my left ankle. So I again recently have started to lay back in the tanning bed and it's been 2 wks and I can tell a difference the spots are getting lighter and seem to be going away again. I hope this info helps some of you out there that aren't seeming to get the results you want from medicine.
