Answer

Transient acantholytic dermatosis (Grover disease) is not curable, and the cause is unknown. Although the symptoms can frequently be controlled, some cases are refractory to treatment and difficult to manage. Current methods of treating symptoms include topical steroids, retinoids, methotrexate, and 5-aminolevulinic acid photodynamic therapy (ALA-PDT).
