      Thanks; I'm calling my clinic tomorrow and insisting on a referral to a dermatologist. I hope to report back something positive!

      A little background: Diagnosed by biopsy with celiac Sept. 18, 2002 (it was so traumatic I remember the exact date - I'd never heard of it). Symptoms included severe combined anemia and IBS.
      I've learned how to live a very full gluten-free lifestyle: I'm in a gourmet club and I enjoy coming up with gluten-free alternatives and substitutions. Someday I'll write a book.
      My health has improved; I'm positively robust! All previous symptoms are GONE.
      However, for the past 4-5 months I've been plagued with an oddly symmetrical rash/itchy scalp/scabs on my head. No where else on my entire body. Has never happened to me before. Fairly sudden onset. I've examined my shampoos, etc. which are mild and gluten-free as far as I can determine. I've gone through 2 bottles of T-
      Gel medicated shampoo by Nutrogena. No difference. My local health food store suggested Emu Oil at $16.00 for a tiny bottle; no difference.
      The spots are on the back upper left & right parts of my head, and as I said, are very symmetrical.
      Question: have I developed DH? I think I'm fairly strict about being gluten-free, and all my digestive symptoms have disappeared. Any suggestions on other treatments?
      This is driving me crazy!
      Thank you anyone, for your feedback.
