Dh Help Please, Fever Blisters, + celiac disease X 18 Months

17 June 2013 - 12:12 PM

I am desperate for any suggestions. I have been DQ2 +, Celiac Dx positive for 18 months. I have been gluten-free intentionally since then. 

I was exposed to Gluten 3 weeks ago and have been suffering terribly with what I believe to be severe DH?

 

I feel a sort of numbess on one side of my face- but its more like a sensitivity- when touched my hair, head is tender to touch-

(I know this sounds really nuts)  The clear fluid filled blisters cluster on my lips and sometimes my eyebrows/hairline...

 

The derm. says it cannot be DH because it is not symmetrical (on both sides). These same symptoms happened on/off for years prior to

the DX of Celiac.... what prompted the testing for Celiac was iron def anemia for 9 plus years. 

My Hemoglbn, Ferritin, Iron studies have greatly improved over the last 18 months! 

 

I am DQ2 positive. These blisters hurt terribly and are lingering....do I go see a diff. dermatologist? Any help? I am incredibly frustrated -

Thank you for any help---
