OMG! I get this. I thought it was just weird hives...just as itchy as hives. Is iodine (besides gluten) the answer?

For some of us, yes. I also had to cut out MSG and all the msg 'alias' ingredients I didn't know about, as well as sulfites. Some folks on here had to go with low salicylates, so we're all a bit different. If or when you go low iodine, don't cut it out for more than maybe a couple of months? I'm not an expert... but it is a necessary mineral. As we heal, our body can process it better too.

I'd start with the gluten-free and possibly low iodine, then keep a food diary to see what sorts of other things may cause an issue for you. Then you can come back here with questions or for some research. Hope you stop itching soon!

Edited to add: If you want a diagnosis, don't start a gluten-free diet until you get a DH biopsy done or blood tests done or whatever testing your doctor agrees to do. Sorry, I should have put that up front.
