Dh Diagnostics?

I've tried searching the forum, but cannot seem to find any info on proper biopsy/diagnostics for DH. I believe that these 'spots' on the sides of my neck, behind my ears, on my jawline, scalp, etc. are DH and am planning to go to my Family Doctor this week (or attempt to anyway) and have him take a look. Can anyone give me more info that I can pass on to him, good articles from respected sources that both explain the condition and proper diagnostic procedures.

TYIA!

I'm having trouble locating information to spoon-feed the doctor on how to properly do the correct biopsies. I want to make SURE, that without a doubt, the doctor KNOWS exactly what to do. The GI who did my colonoscopy/endoscopy didn't even bother to do the biopsies (He " didn't SEE any damage..." GRRR....), so I want to make sure things are done right.

If you read under the first link, there is a pretty detailed description, I believe.

You may need to find a dermatology textbook, etc. Try a library or start googling.
