I have Diabetes Type II and DH. I wonder if my rash isn't healing quickly could be attributed to Diabetes? Would Diabetes cause the rash to last longer even though I am taking Dapsone and am eating gluten-free?

The rash is so improved with the dosage of Dapsone that I am taking but curious about other people and their reactions with DH and Diabetes. If you have any information to reference, please advise.

Misdiagnosed DH symptoms for 30 years in the form of blisters on shoulders, scalp, sole of foot and lower back.
Type II Diabetes 1995  /   Fatty liver biopsy 2001  ~ Diagnosed with NH Lymphoma in 2007 metastasized to bones & Stage IV by 2008 Chemotherapy in 2008 ~ Breakout of rash from scalp to sole of feet. February 28, 2012 until present
Iron deficiency anemia - July of 2012  /  
Osteoarthritis. September 2012  2012 Rash was diagnosed as Eczema, Grover's Disease, Folliculitis per biopsies of the lesions. September 2012   Started Dapsone and Gluten-Free diet on October 20, 2012 ~ Diag DH 2012.  Not taking Dapsone due to sulfa reaction.  Biopsy in July 2013 indicates Lupus but my doctors do not agree on cause of rash for various reasons.

My understanding from what I have read on the board is that DH takes the longest time to resolve. The autoimmune antibodies seem to hang around in the skin longer than in the bloodstream or the gut and the symptoms, unfortunately resolve very slowly. For some the DH is very sensitive to iodine, for others not so much. For some the Dapsone works quite quickly; for others is mediates the symptoms somewhat so they are not quite so acute, but does not chase them away.

It seems like much patience is needed with DH :( :rolleyes:
