Help Dh People

Recommended Posts

Hi Dh sufferers i want to try and help a many Dh people as i can. I have dh it's one of the worst things you can get. My arms were covered and legs, head I'd have to get shower 4 times a night it would drive me crazy I'd itch all day. I was on dapsone for a short time until my wife told me about coconut oil.i started with on heat spoonful for the first week, the second week two spoonful keep on tha until the blisters have gone. You still need to eat gluten free also my wife uses it for cooing to I have no blisters unless cross contamination. The coconut oil has to be Virgin unrefined the blisters will start disappearing in a few months it works for me and I hope it works for you all.

Do you eat the coconut oil or put it on the lesions? I find it useful for dry skin and hair also when applied topically. 

Do you know you should limit iodine until your lesions are healed? Iodine can keep the antibodies active in the skin. I only had to drop iodized salt but others have had to limit high iodine foods also. I stopped getting lesions unless glutened within a couple months and within a couple years my lesions became just one or two tiny blisters when glutened. If your breakouts are still severe if you get CCd you may want to limit iodine for a bit. Do add it back in after your skin has calmed down as iodine is a needed nutrient.

if you want to gain the weight with coconut oil have it three times a day with a protein shake. Good luck
