DH or acne

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I thought my acne was related to gluten intolerance/celiac (not diagnosed as of yet, goes away with Gluten-Free diet) until I started reading on here, then I was unsure if it was actually acne.

When I was gluten free (no longer am for testing) my face was clear. But i have these pimple like bumps on my face, and they hurt! I get them by each eyebrow, along the jawline, and on the forehead. They itch, and when scratched they hurt or burn. They are only fluid filled. But don’t look like the bumps associated with DH. Can it be something other than acne? It doesn’t seem to sound like DH? Or something else?

I do not have DH, but I understand that it is insanely itchy (like it keeps you up at night).  It can not be diagnosed visually, you need a skin biopsy.  You might want to see a dermatologist who is celiac-savvy as the biopsy must be taken in a very special way.  

Celiac disease can cause rashes other than DH.  If you have already trialed the gluten-free diet and saw results, you might want to continue on.  Consider getting a celiac blood panel if you have been back on gluten for three months.  Then go gluten free.  Best to rule out celiac disease as much as you can.  

I wish  you well.

    I cannot expound on the factual information listed in previous posts. I can, however, encourage you to follow your instincts as the mom, but also caution you with the statement that it takes a lot of time to heal. My 12 year old daughter has...
    Sounds yummy.  I am trying a new recipe -  https://www.health.com/recipes/veggie-enchiladas-with-creamy-poblano-sauce  
    So first, nobody here has called you ignorant. Second, "What the animal, eats you eat" isn't correct, especially if you are implying that gluten fed animals mean that their meat would not be gluten-free. There is no research to back this up...
