Dh Caused By Stress?

23 May 2013 - 11:14 AM

Hi all. Little quick background. About 7 years ago I started getting a rash. Tried everything, went to tons of doctors, had a biopsy done, came back "non specific skin irratation". Had the rash all over my body for the better part of 4 years. Got so bad that my feet swole to the point where walking on stairs would split the skin on the tops of my feet. I'll spare you the pictures. Eyes would swell completely shut, got close to suicide. Someone reccomended going gluten free. After about 2 years of learning and trying I started to have rash free months.


Now it's rare that I get the rash but when I do I wonder how because I'm extremely carful. Should also mention that the years of dh gave me MSRA so a little bit of rash is really dangerous and can spread like wildfire.


On to my question, has anyone found that stress can trigger their dh? Wal mart has generic benadryl for $.88, has anyone found that benadryl helps the itching? I know dapsone is the best thing but I can't afford it right now.


Thanks for looking.

Place To Say Hi?

I've looked around and I don't see a place for new members like me to introduce themselves. Am I missing something or should I just dive in maybe describing my diagnosis in that forum?
