pullingstraws added a topic in Dermatitis HerpetiformisIs This Dh? New UserI've been having a recurring rash and I hope someone can shed some light on the subject. For the last 3 months I have been having recurring "bumps" on my buttocks. They are mostly scatered on the left side but a few have appeared on the right. Sometimes the area will burn before I notice anything. Other times just bumps which become itchy that I scratch untill they bleed/scab. Some of them heal quickly while others hang around and flare up now and then. I have acne like bumps on my neck too but they are not pimples. They dont have a burning sensation when they appear though. The only reason I believe it could be DH is because for the last month and a bit I have had episodes of D/C,Neuropathy in my legs and feet(mostly the left side),stomach aches, Blood in my stool, Sciatic pain, quite the list I know! I have had 3 herpes IGG tests and all negative for both types. The doctor said it is not an std. Today i went and had some tests done for celiac, B12, diabetes, Thyroid. Question is does this sound like DH? Does it have to be symmetrical? Do some of your sores have a burning/stinging sensation before they appear? Thanks in advance!
