Grrrr. After having to figure out my son's skin and all that mental stress, my dear daughter (nearly 6) has popped up with her own variety of skin blisters. A few on her fingers, two on her face. One on the back of her leg near her foot, all within the last 3 days or so. I'm thinking maybe dyshidrosis (relying on google here...) Does anybody have any experience with this? Not looking like DH I don't think because each blister is beautifully isolated. No redness around it. But wondering if it could be related.Would appreciate any advice :-/

I would get similar "blisters" on my hand before diagnosed with celiac. Doc thought it was eczema's and gave me a cortisone creams which did help.once I changed my diet and cut gluten I rarely get them now. The more I reduce my antibodies' the less frequent it appears.

My blisters started out in the beginning to just be a tiny blister --- no redness around it..... until I broke it & began scratching.

And in the very beginning mine were isolated not groupings.

*sigh*. Thanks. Hate the whole guessing game. Dr's visits not so straight forward here. Feel so often I'm on my own.

Everything I saw about dyshidrosis said it's on hands & feet not face or legs. Now the leg is close enough to the foot so that might be plausible but the face is way off base.

Squirming did you look this up for me? Or are you just a dermatology whizz?? Either way you are so lovely. Thank you. Hmmm, I never thought about the face not being mentioned. I did think that it's often said DH is not on the face (although I know that to be untrue.) I just thought it was later in the DH lifespan that it appears on the face. Which now that I think about it, is silly. That's just what happened to me but I guess everyone is different.

No whizz here; I just Googled it & that's what I found. Yeah, there's lots of incorrect info. out there about dh so why not about dyshidrosis --- HOWEVER --- dyshi only says hands & feet whereas dh says lots of places sooooooo.....

Looks like it's about time you came home my friend. You & your kids need to be where you can assure yourselves of the foods & ingredients you are eating.

lol!! You sound like my mum, and of course you are right. Hubby and I have decided to slowly start transitioning out, but it is not easy. We run a business here so need to sort that out. We're home in June(to be able to skip the hot season here) and already have the specialist appointments lined up, then back after that for another 18 months
