In Topic: Question Regarding Dh Symptoms.

Today, 04:22 AM

I think Dh is always blistery and itches.  I think the amount of itchiness may just depend on each person's ability to tolerate it.









"Dermatitis herpetiformis (DH) is an itchy, blistering skin condition that’s a form of celiac disease. The rash usually occurs on the elbows, knees and/or buttocks, and is characterized by its bilateral nature; both knees (and/or both arms) are affected, seldom just one. Many people with DH have no digestive symptoms and only about 40% of them have the positive blood tests (serology) for celiac disease. However, they almost always have the same, gluten-dependent intestinal damage as those with the more common symptoms of celiac disease."



Not sure if we have any currently active members with skin biopsy diagnosed DH?

Just want to point out that the original post is from 2009.  Its possible ingredients have changed in that time.

My dad thinks it's anxiety too . .so does my boyfriend. /: Here were my test results in February 5:



Maybe it is? Maybe it is something else. 


But - if you did not have any symptoms of Celiac, why would they test you?  I bet you had some.  And I am a bit confused - were you already mostly gluten free when you had the Celiac tests?


And in your first post, you listed things you ate -  No. those foods - fries, salmon coated with who knows what, etc are probably not gluten free enough for a Celiac.
