Could This Be Dh In Child? Not Really Itchy...

That looks exactly like my son's DH, especially those little craters where he has scratched off the tops. 

 

I know exactly the frustation of trying to figure out what's going on. What we did, was take our son off gluten to see if the tummy aches would get better. Tummy aches stopped immediately and the rash started healing. That was great information and it gave me something to go with when I went to the doctor. The trouble with that was we had to get him back on gluten for a full 12 weeks before we could do any testing. So most people would tell you for that reason, to not go off gluten at all until you a diagnosis. 

Thanks - it's nice to know I'm not way off track! Lol! We have never put him on a gluten-free diet so I'll probably try to get a biopsy before we eliminate it. A 12 week challenge would suck! I appreciate your input :)

Just an update - we have had my son on a low iodine diet and his rash seems to be clearing up. It's difficult to know what's what as his rash seems to flare up and then improve on its own for no apparent reason. It never seems to fully go away though (except when he was on prednisone). We'll get him back on iodine and see what happens!

Wow...what an improvement!

 

And I hear you on finding it difficult because the rash flares up and improves for no apparent reason sometimes. That drives me crazy! 

 

Keep us posted if anything happens after adding iodine back.
