No. That is terrible advice. I would find another derm who knows how to biopsy for DH properly. They need to take the skin next to a fresh spot.
Okay, I have a 9 year old daughter and the dermatologist told us last Thursday he suspects DH. She was diagnosed with OCD at 6 and was thought to be an obsessive compulsive skin picker UNTIL we saw the dermatologist for plantar warts and I asked him to look at her "picking spots".
He said gluten free diet immediately, come back in a month, and if her spots were improved due to diet, he would biopsy two and do bloodwork for gluten allergy. He said he was SURE this was DH.
Does this sound like good advice?
I'm trying desperately to keep her away from ALL gluten, but she's had a slip almost every day. Yesterday was first 100% gluten-free day. How long before the dh will improve?
HELP ME PLEASE!!! )
