I don't know if it's DH or not, I can post pics later.  It's all over the front of my thighs and some on the back of my thighs. There's a little bit on my forearms, palmside. I don't think it's folliculitis, I read this only appears in areas where there's hair, and there's no hair on that area of my forearms. The rash looks like little bumps/pimples and it's very itchy. :(   Can't figure out what it is, there's been no new skincare products/perfumes/body sprays/ no new meds or foods except I've had 2 hamburger buns that had wheat and rye in it. I'm not completely gluten-free but have never had a reaction like this when eating gluten. My dh thinks it can be a chlorine rash but i read that this particular rash looks like chicken pox, and mine doesn't look like that, and I"ve been out of the pool for 5 days and this rash isn't going away. Does it sound like it could be DH?

Maybe check out the Photo's on the DH thread.  It's very difficult to diagnose DH.

 Thanks! I"ll check out those pics. I posted in this forum because the dh forum doesn't seem to be very active.

If you are strictly gluten-free, I am not sure why you would trigger DH now. The blisters are active or form when gluten is consumed.

 

EDITED TO SAY; OKAY, SORRY

 

I just re-read your post and I see you are NOT gluten-free...so you should probably get tested. 

 

i HAVE SEEN YOU ON THE FORUM FOR A WHILE, SO I THOUGHT YOU WERE gluten-free ALREADY. 

My mistake...

 

Just know that not all rashes are DH. For example, I get rashes and I do not have DH.

 

DH is extremely itchy and the sores ooze. I have seen a few bad cases of it up close and it's pretty bad.  :(

DH can take many different forms. My DS's DH starts off like little itchy bump/pimples on his forearms and legs.

I wasn't completely gluten free when my iron levels started dropping so I   wanted to test for celiac again because of my iron issues.The lab would only test TtG IgG and DGP I gG and those were negative. I"m still eating gluten because i want to see what my iron levels will be at my appt. next month, and if my doc feels I need a biopsy, I won't have to wait. :)

 

sorry it took so long to get these pics up. Even if it isn't dh, then I hope someone has had this type of rash before or has seen it and knows what it is! Here's the link,  http://s1371.photobu...?sort=3&page=1

Hopefully i'ts not DH at all.  Very many rashes are common with AI Diseases.  Heck they're common in every one...lol.  Good luck on your Challenge!
