I have been reading everyone's discussions with regard to psoriasis and DH. Are there places where DH is more common? Are there places where psoriasis is more common? I have been diagnosed with Sebo-psoriasis (definitely seborrhea, but not quite psoriasis), but the bumps I have on my face and scalp sound like what you guys are describing as DH. Blistery-looking, bleeding, etc. The dermatologist I went to just gave me 5 different prescriptions to put on it (mostly cortisone topicals). It made it less red, but didn't really make it go away. Since I've started gluten-free, they're not as bad -- can you still get them biopsied???

Courage does not always roar. Sometimes it is the quiet voice at the end of the day that says, "I'll try tomorrow".

"There's not a word yet, for old friends we've just met. Part Heaven, part space, or have I found my place? You can just visit, but I plan to stay, I'm going to go back there some day." Gonzo, in the Muppet Movie

I don't have DH, but I do have psoriasis. It is common to be in the scalp or start there. It is often found on the same spot--both sides of the body. It can start out as red and then grow into a larger spot with thick white flakes--some people describe them at oatmealish...
