I can't view the pictures, to me it only looks like text. Is there something I need to do to see the pictures?

Thanks, that worked!

It does look like the picture that carriefaith posted, and I have seen a lot of pictures that look like both examples.

My rash is different, I get tiny clear blisters that are not very raised but are deep...they itch terribly and then later when they dry up the skin where they used to be cracks and hurts.

Here is another picture that looks similar: http://www.dermis.net/doia/image.asp?zugr=...0&diagnr=694000

These look really bad. Try to find a Dermatologist doctor who knows about Celiac but that definitely looks like DH.

I'm sorry - that looks painful!

I had a dream two nights ago that I had a rash just like that all over one of my legs and as I looked at it I said, wow, I do have DH. Yikes! Thankfully it was a dream.

Also looks a lot like what shingles looks like - I had that when I was 18. If DH is anything like shingles... shudder.... :o

A doctor should be able to take a sample and biopsy it and determine if it's DH.

Good luck to you -

Stephanie

Thanks for the support :P

I don't know if it's really DH because these rashes aren't painful/itchy at all. And there is no blisters, just liquid looking like sebum. Strange.. :unsure:

Nevermind, i'm waiting for blood results and after my doctor will do an intestinal biopsy.

Hi, did you ever get your results back? I broke out in a rash that lasted for a year and my doctor prescribed it as shingles. I think it is DH though.

Blood tests (transglutaminase / endomysium) are negative.

Hi !

Some news. I did endoscopy / coloscopy because i feel very very bad with gluten (chronic diarrhea, fatigue, muscles pain, headaches..).

There is no villous atrophy, just an unknown mild inflammation of duodenum, and presence of lymphoid germinal center.

I'm sure i'm definitely very sensitivite or delayed allergic (the same thing?) to gluten. A little amount of gluten give me symptoms :wacko: (piece of bread, tomato sauce with wheat starch or even rice krispies!)

Since i'm on gluten free diet, my skin problems have decreased a lot, as you can see on these pics :

That's strange because the rashes sounded like DH : a kind of insect bites with fluid inside, and the rashes were symetric around the mouth. The only thing (and the most important) thats differs is the lack of itching/burning. :huh:

    • I also only really eat one meal a day and always after I get home. I never really feel hungrey. I call it 'Pavlov's dog in reverse'.  I think it comes from so many years of food making me sick. I have gotten to the point where I now at least can eat a sandwhich and some fruit during the day but it wasn't a quick process. When folks get like that it is very important to make sure that one meal has a good amount of both calories and nutrtion.  If your diet is how you describe you are starving yourself.  You need to get yourself used to eating again.  What helped me was carrying a baggie with some nuts and dry fruit with maybe even a handful of gluten free pretzels and always some chocolate baking chips. I just ate couple pieces when I thought of it throughout the day. A little bit of cheese and a couple safe crackers, a piece of fruit or a small tin or individual serving snack pack are also good. You need to get some nutrition during the day so you can feel up to cooking a simple full meal  for dinner. I hope your feeling better soon.
    • Ok, I can't seem to find my first lot of blood tests that were done for Celiac screening, they did include TTG I remember that much, and I am getting another copy of it but another test did come in today.  I don't know how different tests are done around the world and I don't get all the medical jargon but this is what it states, ******************************************************************************* HLA DR/DQ Genotyping for Coeliac Disease, Specimen type : EDTA blood Method : Detection of sequence-specific oligonucleotides (Gen-Probe). HLA-DR - 1, 13          DRB1 - 01, 13 HLA-DQ - 5,6        HLA-DQA1 - 5,6      HLA-DB1 - 05, 06 Interpretation : No genotype susceptibility for coeliac disease.  The DQ2 and DQ8 antigens associated with increased risk of coeliac disease were not identified in this patient.  In the absence of these antigens, coeliac disease is extremely unlikely.   *******************************************************************************   I have read the horror stories of blood tests and scope biopsies not be done right or flawed but here is what I do know as of now, At the moment the most non invasive test I can have done say negative.  I have double scopes (endoscopy and colonoscopy) booked for the 12th of October with results from biopsies expected a week or two after. Chances are they will show, a) signs of coeliac disease (even if the odds are low it can still happen), b) show signs of something else entirely and we will be busy dealing with the ramifications of that or c) it will show no signs of coeliac but I will still be suffering from gluten sensitivity (which is harder/impossible to measure clinically). My GP has told me that stress and anxiety can be a cause of all the symptoms I have been experiencing and suggests if the scopes show nothing that I may benefit from something to treat anxiety, i.e. antidepressants.  Not in a, "Oh we don't know what it is so have these," kind of way, he agrees with the thought that the scopes could indeed show coeliac, something else or even be negative. I did tell him that I could have a sensitivity and that even without benefit of clinical results, some people have gone on a gluten elimination diet for a period of time to see if they get any relief.  My question is this, if the scopes come up negative and I try eliminating gluten, how long would it be before I saw any results or improvements?  I have read enough here and elsewhere to know that everybody is different, some see results within days, some see results longer but are there any guidelines for how long a test like this should be undertaken for?  I have heard everything thing from two weeks to two months.  All of this is entirely moot at this point but I know that even if the results said clear, there would always be a little part of me that wonders if it could be a sensitivity that is the problem.  Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated, and a thank you to all those who have taken the time to respond and offer advice and encouragement so far.

    • Yes, I only eat one meal a day. Sometimes salad or fries or whatever I can find. And thanks for the replies again.
