Answer

Initial care for transient acantholytic dermatosis (Grover disease) may be limited to midpotency topical corticosteroids and oral antihistamines. Atopic skin care measures should be recommended. Regular use of moisturizers containing camphor and menthol should be advised.

Acitretin, calcipotriol, and UVA-1 have been described as useful in patients with disease that is difficult to manage. [23] Additionally, oral retinoids, methotrexate, etanercept, and phototherapy have also been reported to help.
