You need to be 100% gluten-free no doubts about it kind of gluten-free. DH is sensitive to the tiniest amount of gluten.

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

Some people report that iodine in their diet makes their DH act up more when exposed to gluten. The way they test for DH (dermatitis herpetiformis) is to take a biopsy sample of the skin right next to a lesion, not the lesion itself tho. DH is a skin expression of celiac disease. So if you are diagnosed with DH then you have celiac disease too. They test the biopsy sample for antibodies to gliaden. There is a section of the forum for DH issues with more information. You came to the right place!
Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.
Thyroid cyst and nodules, Lactose / casein intolerant. Diet positive, gene test pos, symptoms confirmed by Dr-head. My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, and hard work. have a good day! :-) Paul
