Celiac rash? What does it look like?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, I was wondering if someone could describe to me what the DH rash looks like? 

I've noticed a slight rash on my upper arms but they just look like slight raised bumps and some of them look like acne/pimple rashes with the little pimple discharges inside. Not sure if this is what DH is supposed to look like. My upper arms are a little itchy but it's nothing bright red or anything. Honestly, I had to look to see the raised bumps and feel the acne/pimple rash. 

Any advice or tips would be great!

DH has been described as the rash from Hell as the itching is relentless.  Celiac disease can cause different rashes, but not as severe.  Sounds like (but I can not diagnose you over the internet and I am not a doctor) Keratosis Pilaris.  Very common.  Not to worry.

As I told my own kid this morning (who was reading a newly arrived National Geographic) -- hit the books!  ?

I looked up images and what I have on my arms looks very similar to it! Thank you!
