I've had a really bad case of DH on my scalp for @5 years, and it got much worse the last year or so until I stopped using any dairy products, and anything with corn syrup, xantam gum is just another name for corn syrup, so watch out. also any processed corn, chips ,tortillas, are bad mojo. swear to God, my DH is much much better in the last few weeks since i phased out dairy. i was just putting a little in my tea, but it was enough to keep my DH in full blown mode. I swear it's 50% less itchy or more, and it does'nt look nearly as inflamed, and is'nt oozing like it used to.I'm actually going out in public w/out a hat on for the first time in years! I hope this works for you, too!

thanks for the info,my problem is that ive been on the diet for 6 months and i still get it prety bad,there are little things that i must be missing but its fustrating because i never know what i ate that did it,the reason i asked if it was long term was because im in the army and right now i cant go to the field because i cant eat the food they provide,i know i drink a lot of coke and coke zero but coke says it is gluten free so i dont know im lost i just want to live a normal life with out having the rash on my face i guess im just really sensitive to gluten,maybe if i take the dapsone for a bit it will help me a bit we will see,thanks

I had a rash that had all the hallmarks of DH... had it for over 10 months and no topical provided relief. I never sought formal diagnosis (long story) but went gluten free 8/10/09. Within a week or so I was already seeing a difference, in that the topicals that did nothing before, now provided relief.

When I had a couple of pasta meals on a weekend away from home, I experienced an exacerabation of the rash.

Now, 6+ months out on the gluten-free diet, I am almost completely healed, save for the leftover purple spots.... I never went on dapsone. But from what I have read it has some undesirable side effects in the long term.

Yes, your DH may be greatly helped while you are on dapsone, and I am guessing you are currently adhering to a gluten free diet.

So what will happen if you go back to gluten??? Maybe - and others of more experience will correct me here - you will be ok as long as you stay on the dapsone. Maybe.

But do you really want to stay on a drug with known side effects forever? If you don't stay on a gluten free diet, that's what it will take.

Once you stop taking the drug, if you are still eating gluten, I would bet you a hundred bucks your DH will return to haunt you.
