I have been asking if anyone has soy allergies and just read your message, I think also dairy or lactose for me, i will mention it to the Dermatologist and see what he thinks, I itch and scratch, burning skin, feel sick.
Hi I'm new to the site and wanted to tell you a little about what's going on with me.
I had a big surgery on my back a year ago and I developed a rash and many infections, virus's etc. the rash was all over my body, tiny blisters and terrible itch, driving me insane, I would scratch so much I was bleading and taking off the scabs over and over, my GP said he hadn't seen this rash before and though of shingles, herpes, infection from my bone graft, sent me for every blood test, all negative thank goodness, then I was so sick, vomiting and diarreah, I got to see a Dermatologist, he said, you have Dermatitis Herpetiformis, with out a doubt, I said I had flat red lesions in my small intestine and was told 14 years ago it was Celiac the bowel biopsies came back negative ?? so the Dermatologist took biopsies of the blisters and normal area, it came back negative, I told him I didn't eat a lot of the foods he mentioned, as they bothered me, he said that sounded like I was already avoiding Gluten, without realising, I have had blood tests and more biopsies and still negative, I cannot come off the Pnrednisone as the rash is back in minutes ???? he has took me off medications Iv'e been on for years trying to eliminate other allergies ????
