      Gene testing may rule out Celiac Disease.

      Were you eating gluten before the biopsy?     You could have DH.

      Giwi777,      When was the last time your Vitamin D was checked??      I had many pain issues when mine was very low.

      WoW....       You have DH and want to eat gluten.    How were you diagnosed with DH?       It could take quite a while for that gluten to exit your body and stop causing a DH reaction.    I would rethink that approach.

      GFDonna,  "Hope for the Best", isn't an option for those that must eat gluten-free!!!      You must step up and ask if there's a gluten-free option offered!     I've found Chefs for Weddings to be very knowledgeable and go out of their way to accommodate our gluten-free requests.
      Good Luck,

      I've used both without any negative issue.      Aczone Gel works Great and doesn't require blood labs.

      answerseeker,    Two things come to mind,
      1, See a Dermatologist
      2,  Have your Vitamin levels checked.
      My Vitamin D was dangerously low and it took 9 months of Prescription strength VITAMIN D to bring it up within a normal level.   As it came up, my neck, shoulder, arms, hands, fingers, back, and other joint pain found relief.

    13. captaincrab55 added a post in a topic What Other "celiac Rash" Besides Dh?   

      answerseeker,  Try going to a Dermatologist.    I have DH (diagnosed by biopsy & blood labs) and it doesn't always act the same.    What makes you so sure your getting Glutened???      I get tummy & lower GI issues from Dairy, Nuts and recently Corn.     It's taken me 4 years and 4 months to add Dairy, Nuts & Corn to my list of foods I can't eat.     Keep in mind that I went through 2 rounds of allergy testing in the past 4 years.    Both times I was negative to those three foods and may never test positive on an allergy test.  
        IMO,   a good GI Doctor won't give advice on a skin issue.   He should be sending you to a Dermatologist.    Would you use a Plumber to diagnose your Electrical issues???
      Good Luck,

      That Dentist passed away quite awhile back.    My current Dentist is well aware.
