I have been gluten free (except for the occassional cross contamination in a restuarant) for two years now. I have never had a problem with eczema. About a year ago, I developed these bumps on the back of my upper arms. Also, I have an itchy scalp. At my last appointment with my endocrinologist, he said that I had eczema on my scalp. It gets severely worse if I ingest gluten! Does this sound like DH or could it just simply be eczema?

Thanks,
Becky <_<

I would get it checked by a specialist (or someone who can test it). Because of my son's allergies they immediately thought "excema"... now they are reconsidering that DX since we know about the gluten issue.
