So for maybe the past year (haven't been tracking as I never thought it was connected to gluten) I get these random sore spots on my fingers/palms. I wondered if any of you DH experts had anything similar. Some details:

1. Only get one at a time
2. Last a few days to a few weeks
3. A very small, pimple size bump
4. Flesh colored, so not red, or inflamed, or discolored. If you tried to find it w/out me pointing it out you wouldn't notice it.
5. No push or fluid. No blister or boil. Just a bump you can feel
6. Sometimes a barely visible red or dark dot at the center
7. Painful when you push or rub against it. That's the only indication it is there and how I will first notice it. It feels like a sliver or tiny paper cut but there's nothing there.

I mostly get them on my index finger, just below the meaty pad of my finger tip. I've had one on my middle finger (same approximate location) and one on the palm of my hand near the fleshy section between my thumb and index finger. I have had them on both hands so not related to callus or blister from holding a pen/pencil for example. I don't think it's a wart because it never develops into anything. It mysteriously appears, again I notice it like I'd notice a sliver, and a week or so later it's just gone. Then I forget about it until the next one randomly appears on some other hand, finger, palm. Repeat. A google search yields quite a few people asking similar questions but no good answers.

Any ideas?

I'm going to start tracking on my food log now. It never dawned on me to do so.

Hi Birdie,
My hunch is that I'd be suspicious of other things before DH. A few of the characteritics don't seem to be prominent features, but there's no such thing as normal DH so who knows! Probably the most contra-indicitive seems to me to be the 'only one at a time' thing. DH lesions can come in groups or individually, but usually you would see multiples all at various stages.

Best wishes!

When they go away does the skin around where the bump was peel? My palmoplantar pustular psoriasis started with just one or two bumps like that. At first they didn't look like the whithead pimples that they do now when I get a flare. They too were just bumps. Then they would go away and I would get a new one someplace else. Eventually I got more and more spots until my hands were covered, from wrist to fingertips.

Do you get them on your feet too?

gluten-free since June, 2011

Can't eat soy, corn, or foods high in salicylates.

Nightshades now seem to bother me too.

 

BUT I CAN STILL PLAY MY GUITAR AND THAT"S ALL THAT MATTERS!

Hi birdie, it doesn't sound much like dh. There's a chance it's pre-dh but really it sounds more like something else --- I don't know what but it isn't really ringing any bells for dh at this time.

I wonder if it could be herpes?

For years I had a few small blisters appear and disappear in the same spot on my index finger. Apparently it was a herpes virus in the skin. The bumps finally just went away and never came back.

Doesn't peel, not really a blister, just a bump, never in the same spot twice, none on feet or anywhere else just hand/finger. The one from last week is almost gone 5 days later.

Ah, not herpes then! It was always in the exact same spot. Hopefully your food log tells you something.
