I was diagnosed with celiac disease 3 years ago, Have Hyperthyroidism (I take Synthroid), Cirrhosis of the Liver and Pulmonary Hypertension. I've had dry skin as long as I can remember and have also used lotion daily with Vitamin E in it. Since the first of the year, I noticed my arms have been more dry than usual, and about 2 weeks ago I started breaking out in this horrible rash on my arms, stomach and back. I finally went to a Dermatologist who did 2 biopsies on my left arm which had been oozing yellow junk. So now I'm waiting for those results, but was told that it looks like DH. I have been very strict eating gluten free for 3 years and have no idea what brought this on after being gluten-free so long. I am taking Keflex for 10 days to clear up the infection where I scratched and scratched, and am using a prescription ointment. Any thoughts????
