I am not dxed with Celiac.. My bloodwork was negative. SO I went gluten free on my own.. with some success... I have a long history of weird skin rashes.. one doctor thought I had Shingles.. but it kept coming back..

Long story short.. last week I was glutened several times and on Sat night at a party... I woke up this morning and my skin was itching like crazy and I got one of my rashes on my thigh near my butt... I looked up DH and looked at the pictures and it looks so much like it I am wondering

Can you get a dx of Celiac from a skin biopsy if it shows DH????

Yes, a skin biopsy which is positive for DH is diagnostic of celiac disease. The biopsy must be taken from skin adjacent to the eruption.
