Is that possible? I'm getting this crazy itchy, red and blotchy rash on my jawline and cheek area. Its starting to peel and just looks disgusting.

Yup.

 

I haven't officially been DXd with DH, but I'm 99% positive that's what it is. I've had it since childhood. It's maddening - both itchy and painful.

 

I often get it on my neck right up near the hairline in the back (that's where I always got it when I was a child and teen) but now I also get it on my face at times. Sometimes I get it on my back and once in a very blue moon, my upper arms.

Hairline behind ears and in the back here.

 

By the way, Hidradenitis suppurativa is gluten-related too. But there probably has been no reseach verifying this.

Hi again, I think DH mainly appears around the neck and scull area in the upper body, but I have seen photos of a lady in the celiac.com photo bank who had it in the face I think.... Especially during the second part of the challenge ( w 5- 9) I also constantly had herpes-like ulcers in and around my mouth.. Charming!! But I get something like DH on my upper back legs ... For years I though I was getting chicken pocks constantly...

It seems to me that my DH usually affects the same area over and over and everyone is different as to their most sensitive areas.  Mine does affect the hairline, around my lips, on chin; but my worst breakout areas are from elbows thru upper arms across my upper back and my buttocks and the backs of my upper legs. I recently visited my son and of course we ate out which I rarely do due to CC. Of course I was assured it was gluten free but you know that is never 100% true.  I am going thru a terrible breakout right now.  By the way I have been gluten free for 3 years and as time goes on the littlest bit of gluten causes a DH outbreak. For me It takes a long time to clear up.

For me, too. I've actually had DH lesions last a couple of months on occasion. Typically, though, they last about a week.

Thanks so much for pointing this out to me, I actually get them inside my mouth too, especially all over my front and middle palate... Extremely painful when eating...

DH can present anywhere on the body. Just ask me. I've had it everywhere except mucus membranes. Bottom of my feet, hands, fingers, upper legs, lower legs, knees, elbows, neck, scalp, in my ears, in my belly button, on my nipples, collar bone, chest, breasts, stomach & pubic area, shoulders, any area of the back, any area of the arms, armpits, ankles, toes, upper feet & some on my face.
