I don't know if it's DH or not, I can post pics later.  It's all over the front of my thighs and some on the back of my thighs. There's a little bit on my forearms, palmside. I don't think it's folliculitis, I read this only appears in areas where there's hair, and there's no hair on that area of my forearms. The rash looks like little bumps/pimples and it's very itchy. :(   Can't figure out what it is, there's been no new skincare products/perfumes/body sprays/ no new meds or foods except I've had 2 hamburger buns that had wheat and rye in it. I'm not completely gluten-free but have never had a reaction like this when eating gluten. My dh thinks it can be a chlorine rash but i read that this particular rash looks like chicken pox, and mine doesn't look like that, and I"ve been out of the pool for 5 days and this rash isn't going away. Does it sound like it could be DH?

If you are strictly gluten-free, I am not sure why you would trigger DH now. The blisters are active or form when gluten is consumed.

 

EDITED TO SAY; OKAY, SORRY

 

I just re-read your post and I see you are NOT gluten-free...so you should probably get tested. 

 

i HAVE SEEN YOU ON THE FORUM FOR A WHILE, SO I THOUGHT YOU WERE gluten-free ALREADY. 

My mistake...

 

Just know that not all rashes are DH. For example, I get rashes and I do not have DH.

 

DH is extremely itchy and the sores ooze. I have seen a few bad cases of it up close and it's pretty bad.  :(

I wasn't completely gluten free when my iron levels started dropping so I   wanted to test for celiac again because of my iron issues.The lab would only test TtG IgG and DGP I gG and those were negative. I"m still eating gluten because i want to see what my iron levels will be at my appt. next month, and if my doc feels I need a biopsy, I won't have to wait. :)

 

sorry it took so long to get these pics up. Even if it isn't dh, then I hope someone has had this type of rash before or has seen it and knows what it is! Here's the link,  http://s1371.photobucket.com/user/starbuxgal/library/?sort=3&page=1

Hopefully i'ts not DH at all.  Very many rashes are common with AI Diseases.  Heck they're common in every one...lol.  Good luck on your Challenge!
