Hives Vs Dh?
0

5 posts in this topic

Hives or DH presentation? Thoughts please! I was thinking hives but it has been brought to my attention DH can present like hives...but can it come and go like hives? They seem to last 30min to 2hrs then fade but others take their place in other areas...this has only been going on since last night and I have not changed one single thing about my eating or environmental habits.

Could not get the links to work or pics to load so hopefully the below link will navigate you to my pics.

eeeek that does not look like fun.

I've seen the circle on circle type when their clustered close together like in the first image there.

As of right now, i'd call it hives.

Also, hives don't always have to have an allergic trigger.

I broke out in them the day after my gallbladder was out due to the iodine type stuff left on my stomach. It was the small prickly kind and it was hell. Eventually it cleared up on its own.

All i could say now is just to keep the benadryl on hand and if it gets worse go to the ER.

Yep, looks live hives --- at least it doesn't look like dh. And I've never had nor heard of dh coming & going in 30 min. to 2 hours. Be happy it ISN'T dh! Benadryl is a good idea. Hives can be triggered by stress too, either mental or physical.

I can say that in the beginning, my DH acted like hives when it disappeared. It did that "spontaneously remit" thing one time. It wasn't a full- blown rash (compared to what it did later) and I woke up one day and it was almost gone (after hanging around for 3 months). It wasn't gone in an hour but it was down to just pink skin in 24.

I'm not posting this to say its DH, but to tell others that DH can quickly, spontaneously remit. At least once :). Haven't ever had it do it like that since.

    • Thanks a lot for your advice and the link. I will surely check upon GCED. But, doesn't a negative HTTG (can't do IgA ttg as IgA deficiency) result mean that I am not exposed to gluten ? 
    • Thank you for going through my long post and responding. I have been both dairy and gluten-free free for 10 months now. Yes, even I was worried about other food allergies. I mentioned it to my GI doc and asked if I need food allergy test to eliminate other allergens. He said, food allergy tests give a lot of false positives and are not accurate. He said: not everything is because of food allergy and it's refractory celiac which is causing issues as the jejunum biopsy, done recently, is showing villous flattening.

      My doubt: 1. If I have so much damage in my small intestine (villous flattening) then how was I keeping fine for 6-7 months ( eating eggs, soy, rice and meat) - was constantly losing weight though - but was able to work out regularly - not much fatigue. 2. If it is other food allergens ( out of mentioned allergens, I take eggs, soy chunks, almonds only) why does it happen only few times and not always - I keep well for 7-8 days and then fall sick again - this without any change in diet.  
    • Oh, Trish at the GlutenFreeWatchDog tested Planter's honey roasted peanuts three years ago.  The can did not state gluten-free, but showed no gluten ingrediants (per Kraft policy).  Test result: less than 5 part per million which is pretty much gluten-free.  
    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!
