Delayed Dh

Recommended Posts

I have had Celiac for 10 years and have been on a very strict gluten free diet.  In the past I have known I accidentally got gluten by severe headache, stomach ache, fatigue, and constipation.  All of a sudden I have developed DH rashes on my knees.  Is that unusual when I have never had a DH rash before?  And the weird part, is that I did not get any of my usual symptoms of gluten!  Could it be a result of something topical and not something I ate?  Now I am questioning my diet, and wondering where this new symptom came from.  I am hoping I can deal with this without going on Dapsone.  Any advice?

Can someone with celiac disease, who didn’t initially have dermatitis herpetiformis (DH), develop it if he/she has continued gluten exposure?

If someone with celiac disease is actually ingesting gluten, he/she could theoretically develop dermatitis herpetiformis later in life.

I'm wondering if your rash is something else?  I would hope the doc would biopsy it before giving you Dapsone. We can develope allergies we never had before.

Also read this thread all the way through. Similarities.

You might try limiting iodine first to see if that makes a difference. DH can be very sensitive to iodine. DH IS very sensitive to the slightest amount of gluten --- the slightest amount.
