Does This Sound Like Dh?
Posted 12 February 2005 - 06:54 AM
Also, now that I am gluten-free (7 months -- occasional slippage, particularly with restaurant food), I sometimes get huge red boils around my hairline. They are sometimes pus-filled, and go away after a few days. These bright red eruptions are fairly new to me. Do they sound like DH?
Thanks for any thoughts.
Met with Dr. A. Fasano in Baltimore (Dec 2006), who felt I didn't need to be tested based on my history and positive response to the gluten-free diet.

The abdomen thing might have been shingles, or DH. Shingles is terribly painful. My son occasionally gets it on his abdomen. It hurts to let clothing brush up against it. DH can also be painful though. I guess this is why a good doctor will biopsy the rash to know for sure...As patients maybe we should push for biopsies, since we know it might be DH...

I also suffer from DH along with the Celiac. That does sound like DH to me. My outbreaks are fluid or pus filled bumps. They also sting and are sensitive to touch. Ask your doctor to prescribe doxepine. This medication takes care of the pain and may make you sleepy. I am also allergic to soy and this acts as the gluten causing the DH outbreaks. I hope this helps you.
