I have Granola Annul are over a very large part of my body,

Customer Question

I have Granola Annul are over a very large part of my body, I look awful. It has been there for a long time at least a year. I have tried the cortisone cremes, and pills, not much help from that! I have arthritis, some rheumatoid in my hands. Osteoarthritis through out the rest of me. I take Mobic or Celebrex for the pain. I also Have had the shingle and flu vaccines. I have been on a low dose of Zocor for a long time, I have read this can raise Blood sugar quite a bit! It has gone up while taking it. This is also is related to the Granuloma Annulare. I just want to know is there way to find the cause through testing I would like to treat the cause and the look. I look awful, I have so much all over me. Also is freezing or injections of cortisone the best treatment! If I can afford it? thank You so much! Dawne R
