Hi,
I have yet to be tested for DH although I definitely have some kind of gluten related autoimmune skin problem which sounds like DH. I'll be seeing a naturopath recommended by someone on this forum, so I'm crossing my fingers I get some clarity on what is going on. In the meantime, I'm curious if any of you have had luck using emu oil on your rash? I started using it last week and have had amazing results. So I'm posting in case it will help someone else, and also to see if other's DH responds to it, then it might help determine that this is what I have.

Hi Bubbleye - I'm curious about the emu oil. Are you using it when you first see an eruption of DH or does it work on the scabbed over ones?

Also, where do you buy emu oil? Which brand are you using?

Thank you!

I have tried Emu oil & it has not made a bit of difference for me as to helping to stop the itching. So my question would be the same as PDB*DH above.

Self diagnosed dh Sept. 2011~~~ confirmed dx July 18, 2012

Summer 2013 We both have added back a little soy which is near unavoidable & we are doing okay with that small amount.

I'm using100% emu oil by a company called Laid in Montana. I got it from the homeopathic pharmacy here in Santa Monica, but you can also buy it online: http://www.montanaem...ontana-emu-oil/

I started using it on a bad break out (on my face) about a week ago and immediately the sting and itch went away and the little blisters are dry and almost flaked off. I've been using it all over my face twice/day since. I've felt the tingle of new eruption but they haven't materialized. Either this stuff is a miracle for me, or I would have gone into remission anyway. Hard to tell but I know I'm way more comfortable since using it. Hope it works for someone else. I went to Dr. today (really great one) who is also convinced it is in fact DH that I have.

An update after using the emu oil for a couple of weeks now: I have gotten new blisters, but the emu oil seems to help my skin overall feel more comfortable and the breakouts seem more contained.

I have found moisturizing DH lesions, especially while healing, speeds healing and discomfort. And keeping skin happy and healthy seems to ease discomfort and reaction overall.

The benefit to Emu oil may be that it's animal fat - thus probably low in salicylates and I assume additives (perfumes, etc. that sometimes irritates rashes). So, it would probably be better than a fruit or nut oil for salicylate sensitive DH sufferers.

BTW I'd been using almond oil/Shea salve on the DH on my hand and it starting inflaming it. I stopped and just used Vanicream and now it's almost healed. Sometimes we do stupid things - should have known better.

Whatever I have on my neck, I have some Barleans organic coconut oil and slathered some on my neck last night and whatever it is looks so much better today.
