Possible DH

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

It is impossible to say based on one photo that is not that close up. Even if it were, there are a ton of rashes in the world.

Please describe more of how the rash acts.

If you want to get a dh biopsy then you should continue eating gluten & find a dermatologist experienced in doing dh biopsies and have them do a biopsy. Here is a link explaining exactly how the biopsy is done:

Make SURE the derm does not take the biopsy ON a lesion.

Just went to dermatologist for biopsy and need to go for blood tests.  She did not want to speculate on anything till she gets all of the results. She stated it looks like some kind of dermatitis.  The rash seems to very symmetrical and itches like crazy.  It covers me feet, ankles, thighs, buttocks, and both sides of my back.  Also my scalp has started itching like crazy this morning.

They always say it looks like some kind of dermatitis. That or they say scabies, poison ivy or oak, eczema, blah, blah, blah.

The question is...... did she do the biopsy correctly? Did she take it ON a lesion or adjacent to one?

DH is sensitive to iodine so while you wait, you can try going low iodine. Here's a link:

Also, NSAID's tend to get the rash riled up so try like heck not to take anything. If you do have to take something Tylenol seems to be the least aggravating to the rash.

Does the rash seem to ramp up it's itchiness late afternoon/night? Do you have any other symptoms of celiac disease? Do you have thyroid disease? Diabetes?

Here is a link to a list of maladies associated with celiac disease. Of course, almost all these things can be associated with something else. The point is that celiac disease is not just "running for the bathroom". In fact, over 50% of dx'd celaics did NOT present with GI issues.
