Danat, thank you for sharing. I was diagnosed in Oct 08 and have had a reaction since being gluten free. I know it may happen for awhile since they say it can take up to 2 years. I REFUSE to take Dapsone and my Dr. fully agreed with that since the drug is so questionable. I got rid of it once but then came again. I got rid of it again but it sure reminded me of how hard it is not to itch! FYI: I still have the red patchiness but no bumps...for now!!!
And for all you "Mother of Jibril" ppl out there who assume someone does or doesn't know if they have DH based on a post, I do. 3 confirmed biopsies, positive blood work, and positive intestine upper GI with biopsies which also confirmed Celiac.
Because my dermatologist was so great in seeing the characteristics and diagnosing me so quickly, I believe that helped me be able to get rid of it on my own. I had it only 2-3 months before dx. Thank goodness as I am sure someone who had it for years would have a lot tougher time to get it to clear up.
