Can Anyone Explain What Dh Symptoms Are?

I thought DH was a rash that affected your knees and elbows. From the little I have read, it sounds that many of you have other symptoms. Can you list some common symptoms or your own symptoms? Can you tell me if my skin problems could be DH?
I had a biopsy diagnosis of Celiacs a little over a year ago. I have been gluten-free ever since with a few accidents. Since then I have noticed that if I touch gluten, I have problems. Like touch a piece of bread and those finger tips split open and bleed. The whole hand dries out and does not respond to cream. I know I have used at least one hair dye that made me crampy and sick, but I did not have my typical gluten ungestion reaction. And yes my scalp took forever to recover from that hair dye, which was my last one until I find something safe. Gluten in the lipstick cause my lips to crack open and bleed. That was fun too

DH is the itchy clear blisters on various parts of your body. The only reason your skin would crack is from scratching them.

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!
