Dyshidrosis Connections?
0

8 posts in this topic

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

    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.  
    • I'm glad I found these forums!  I will spend some more time this evening reading through them.  But I wanted to get my question out there just to see if anyone else might have answers quicker than I can sift through the forum for them.      I've been feeling terrible for about a year, and after an elimination diet last month, figured out that if nothing else, gluten/wheat is a problem.  After lots of research, I abandoned the elimination diet and added gluten back in, so that I could get tested for Celiac.   I was off gluten for 3 weeks, from mid-June until early July.  I've had it back in my diet for almost 3 weeks now.    My question is this: Since I was off gluten for 3 weeks, and now back on for almost 3, is that enough time on to yield a positive Celiac blood test, if that indeed is what I have?  All the research I've done says 4-6 weeks for a gluten challenge, but is that really necessary if I was only not eating it for 3 weeks?  I am desperate to get this testing done and over with.  I feel terrible all the time and getting through the day is a struggle.  My doctor ran allergy panels already and everything came back clear except for a mild wheat allergy.  So if nothing else, I'll have to give up wheat for sure at the end of all this.  I get the feeling she doesn't know a ton about Celiac though, so I'm doing a lot of the research on my own. Any advice or information would be so appreciated! 
    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!
