Dh And Reactions To Eating Gluten
0

2 posts in this topic

Ok, I've got a newbie question.

I was just diagnosed two weeks ago with DH and was put on Dapsone. My rash never itched to begin with and is my only noticeable symptom. How can I tell if I have eaten gluten? As much as I'd like to think that I managed to not eat gluten on Thanksgiving, with 80+ people around and 5+ tables of food with serving spoons everywhere I doubt it. Any advice would be wonderful! I haven't spoken with my doctor yet, but I go in to see her Wednesday. What questions should I ask about this?

Eventually you'll have to go off the Dapsone, and then you'll be able to tell if you've been accidentally glutenated by the rash. Mine appears 30-45 minutes after I've eaten something with gluten in it, but my rash itches so that's how I notice it. I would say to just keep an eye on your most common DH sites after eating something questionable. Some people it seems to take up to 3 days for symptoms to appear.

If this doesn't work, I would ask your doctor about it. Good luck!
