DH is strange (just like celiac disease). Some people break out like crazy with just small amounts of gluten and others heal up when they just cut back on gluten. Some take months and months to get rid of the DH and others (including me) get rid of it immediately. My father suffered from celiac disease for 20 years (he didn't know about the celiac disease connection); it disappeared for several years; and then it came back. Then he was diagnosed with celiac disease with no symptoms other than the celiac disease.
Nobody wants to have celiac disease, but if you truly have DH, you must, must remain gluten-free. If you don't, you could end up like me. I had DH for more than 20 years and was unaware of the celiac disease connection. The celiac disease finally caught up with me and nearly killed me. 11 days in the hospital, 10 weeks off work, and about a year to really recover.
