This is my theory, we have had an incredibly low immune system because of celiac but we have carried on having gluten. We have took antibiotics ( which ruin the villi in the stomach with over use

Actually, No and no. The opposite is true about the immune system. In people with celiac disease (which is an auto immune disorder) the immune system is too active, always on guard. Antibiotic over use kills the gut flora, which allows candida albicans to proliferate, which in turn atrophies the villi. They die, leaving tiny holes in the small intestine (leaky gut syndrome) where long and medium chain proteins cross the barrier into the blood, causing an immunogenic reaction.
it's better to research than theorize.

In Topic: One Dr. Uses Wine Sensitivity As Health "gauge"

VERY interesting. 

I get a bad reaction to red wine. It's not a gluten reaction however. My neck muscles get super tense and sore. It does not happen when i drink white wine tho.

In Topic: DH Photo Bank

I thought that a thread containing a collection of the different shapes and forms of DH could be helpful to people looking for something to compare their own rashes with. So go ahead and post your rashes here to help others find a point of reference. Please add associated symptoms and a short history.

I am however doubtful of this idea being a good one because some people might add photos that are not related and confuse people who are new to all this. I hope it will be ok and if it's not then it's ok to delete this thread and I apologize in advance ;-)

Since I haven't seen a rash that is milder than mine I think that it's actually a proper coincidence that mine is the first one :-)

These images were taken when the rash was in it's mildest form. It has sadly developed since these photos were taking, and gets pink swollen bumpy areas under the blisters. It is also starting to spread to the next finger and on the webbing between my fingers.
The rash used wake me up at night with a blistery, throbbing, itching, and burning finger when I used to consume gluten. Now it mostly burns whenever it shows up with very mild itching. The water in the blisters is clear.


Important: Please note that I'm self-diagnosed, meaning this rash is based on my own speculations based on my symptoms all put together.

That is NOT DH.

In Topic: New Skin Sensitivity

Yes my skin has gotten more sensitive over time.
I have discovered I am really sensitive to Sugar and fructose. I will get hives and or blisters on my body in odd places. Sometimes if someone touches me, i get a red itchy rash.
Yet there are some wheat containing products I can use topically, no problem.
I don't look at it as just celiac anymore.
I have a mast cell disorder. That is what ANY auto immune disease is. My immune system is like a wild fire. It will burn and burn without anyway to put it out except time. Sometimes it's not that bad at all. It's a confusing affliction.
