Look like DH? Bilateral Itchy Bumpy Elbows

Hello wise people!

I'm looking for some advice from those in the know. I have a reoccurring elbow rash (bilateral) that comes and goes. First episode about 10 yrs ago at age 20.

It presents as skin coloured bumps that are really itchy on both outer elbows. Over the course of 1 to 2 weeks the bumps may turn pinker and then dry out.

I saw a Dr in the early days and was told it wasn't psoriasis and was possibly caused by leaning on my elbows. ?

After another flare up last week (first in months) I saw a Nurse, who has referred me for a Dr review in a few weeks (earliest available appointment).

In the last 3 years I have also had flare ups of; itchy bumpy fingers, itchy lower back with tiny blister/bumps that turn red and extremely itchy calves with no rash. 

My mum is gluten intolerant with skin & stomach symptoms and has hypothyroidism.

I have attached pics of my elbows from this week, and older pictures of my fingers and back rash.

Any thoughts and comments will be greatly appreciated. Does this look like DH?

Hi Jane, I know this was written 2 years ago, but do you have an update on your diagnosis? Did you find out the cause of your rashes? Because I HAVE THE EXACT SAME THING!

Hello, I see your post is more recent than the OP in 2017, did you find out anything about this? My daughter has this exact rash. Comes and goes for the last 3 years. Elbows mostly and sometimes knees. She's 6. I have ceoliac in my family, but not us that I know of. Interested to find out more. Thanks.

Hi Lea,

Jane hasn't been on the forum for a few years.  She also isn't following this thread so she won't know you posted a question for her.

There is lots of info on DH in the forum though.  You might get more response by starting a new thread.


Proverbs 25:16 "Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it."

Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.

Thyroid cyst and nodules, Lactose / casein intolerant. Diet positive, gene test pos, symptoms confirmed by Dr-head. My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, eggplant, celery, strawberries, pistachios, and hard work. Have a good day! 🙂 Paul

I have the same thing, but no autoimmune or celiac. I find that rubbing handsanitizer on my elbows, up to 4 times a day for about a week usually makes it go away.
