    I was diagnosed with a Vitamin D deficiency and was put on a prescription of 50,000 units per week by my doctor. I don't think it was intentional but another problem seems to be resolving as a result. I've had granuloma annulare on my feet, ankles and lower legs (confirmed by biopsy after several years of ringworm treatment by various GPs) for about 8 years and they suddenly seem to be fa ...
