In the post earlier I sent links of pics I had taken of my most recent outbreak. This hive'ish swelling before turning into little blisters has happend a few different times in the last 2-3 months.
While thinking about it further, I realized some of the little bumps I always blow off may be DH related. Maybe? I have always had these little red breakouts by my hairline, on my shoulders, and on arms. They aren't terribly itchy in comparison to the welts in my previous post, but I literally can't remember a time "not" having red breakouts in these spots (hairline/shoulders/arms).
Maybe I am just fair skinned and sensitive...I don't know. I would just love to have a fix for the tummy issues I've been plagued with for so long, so I am hoping these little bumps prove to be "clues".

Try to get it figured out ASAP because you might be able to avoid the years of suffering that many of us have dealt with. You skin looks pretty good at this point and you don't want to end up with the scars, dark spots and white spots that years of DH can cause.

I think this may help put you on the right track:
Self diagnosed dh Sept. 2011~~~ confirmed dx July 18, 2012
Gluten free Dec. 2011
Soy free Dec. 2011
Hubs self diagnosed dh March 30, 2012
Hubs gluten free March 30, 2012
Summer 2013 We both have added back a little soy which is near unavoidable & we are doing okay with that small amount.
Sept. 2013 adding back dairy in small quantities & thus trialing iodine

I'm feeling pretty good as long as I am super strict with the gluten so I continue eating both eggs and dairy but if you are still having GI issues you might want to look into it some more.
By the way, the pics look very much like my DH as well.
