Dh Relief
0

3 posts in this topic

Last week I was suffering from some DH breakouts and hives (new makeup issue).  I went into my local Wallgreen's and decided to pick-up some new gluten free lotion to try.  I sampled Dove Cream Oil (extra dry skin/advanced formula) on my itchy arms and hands in the store.  I laughed to myself thinking, "I'm either going to feel a little better or a whole lot worse in about 30 minutes."

 

I liked the way the lotion felt on my skin and decided to purchase it.  I noticed on my drive home that I was no longer itching on my hands as I had all morning long.  I waited a few hours and my hands felt soft and calm.  I decided to go for the gusto and apply it to my whole body.  Same result.  My DH on my stomach, back, legs, and shoulders were no longer driving me insane.

 

I had a peaceful nights sleep for once!!!  So, I have been religiously this cream to my body for the past few days.  I actually feel normal.  WOW.  I forgot what that was like.

 

I am pleased to announce that my skin is calm.  No new breakouts.  My DH spots are healing & I have a new sense of hope that I can experience some relief!!!

 

It is very early on, but I really wanted to share this good news.  I know how miserable this itching can be and if this helps anyone else I will be so pleased.

 

 

Thank you.

Hmmm, that's interesting.  I may have to pick some up.  My daughter should try that.  She has rashes / dry skin all over her arms and legs that I'm starting to wonder if it isn't DH.  For my DH, I sometimes put preparation H on it which actually numbs it and helps with the itching.

It's no cure for sure, but my skin now is soft, it calms my itching within a few minutes, and I swear my reactions are left frequent. Good luck. I will have to try prep h too. Thanks!

    • I am sorry that you are sick!   Unfortunately, all celiac testing requires you to be on gluten.  😔.   Testing is usually not over until you get an actual diagnosis, but it appears that you may very well have celiac disease.    Here is more information: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ http://theceliacmd.com/2015/06/six-reasons-to-test-for-celiac-disease-before-starting-a-gluten-free-diet-3/ in the meantime, you can eliminate dairy products temporarily.  It may provide some relief.  
    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!
