Does Dh Always Result In Pustules?
Posted 26 August 2012 - 10:39 AM
We took her gluten-free 1 week ago, and yesterday, day 6 of gluten-free, my hubby forgot and let her have a slice of pizza. :/ When she woke up this am she was complaining about her hand. It does itch but is NOT driving her to distraction as I would expect DH to do. So it probably isn't that but I thought I'd ask here just in case...

I know there are people who have a variety of lesions, but for my part I have never had anything that I would call a pustule, which suggests 'puss'.
My lesions have always had blood or clear bloody fluid.
In the 'pre-DH' or 'post-DH' stage (if there is such a thing), the lesions seem to be without fluid and just involve inflammed patches, broken or scaly skin which never seems to heal over a long period.
Itching or stinging to the extreme is characteristic. The fact she was complaining about it suggests that it IS itching or stinging, but perhaps she just hasn't got an extreme case. Yet.
