Is this DH?

It could be.  It could also be eczema.  Celiacs can have many kinds of rashes besides DH.   The only way to know for sure is a skin biopsy.  It has to be done correctly.

Were you able to get an intestinal biopsy?  I recall you being in a gluten challenge.

i haven't had my biopsy yet. Was scheduled for early january but due to my weight (i'm overweight) i cannot have it done in the outpatient center. So I am rescheduled for end of February at the hospital.

This is actually my sons arm.
