DH Info Sheet
Most of the information out there is much the same, and yeah, steroids are used to treat it initially and can clear it up. But topical steroids have some pretty serious side effects, whereas going gluten-free (which is almost always associated with DH) does not. The thought is that the immune reaction from gluten, instead of affecting the intestines, are affecting the skin instead, and I believe a few studies have found IgA deposits in the skin lesions.

My search now is to find why I may broke out almost continuously for the last 5 weeks. One place will flare up, clear up and then a new spot will appear. I have looked very closely at my diet and unless there is another food suspect I am gluten-free (only fruits, veg., cheese, eggs, meat and very little diary) not food outside of my house and no packaged anything. any ideas?
