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:
