Dermatitis Even If Going Gluten Free?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I developed an itchy rash on my right abdomen. It has the hallmarks of DH meaning there was first an unbearable itch then it came. My question is I have been doing my best to go gluten free already and I wonder why this came?  It happened yesterday Wednesday. Im planning to have it biopsied this coming Saturday. Will it still show positive even if a few days has elapsed? The itch is quite gone now. 


Thanks! Anyone had similar experience?

Make sure the area BESIDE the rash is biopsied and not the actual rash itself.  The autoantibodies are found beside the rash.  


I've had what I thought was dh flare up on me when I'd been gluten-free for quite some time. I'm still not sure if that was it.  I imagine that dh could still crop up in the first few month gluten-free since most people's bodies are still making the autoantibodies (it usually does not stop immediately). i'm not a dh expert at all though.  Try posting your questions about dh in the dh forum if yopu do not get more help.


Good luck.
