Dermatitis H

Recommended Posts

About a month ago I had a blistery rash between a couple of my toes on both feet. It spread on to the top of my foot but not too far. I assumed it was Athlete's foot, even though I had never had this before. All the Lotramin and foot powder in the grocery store did not get rid of it. When I got a rash on the heels of both hands I figured out it was Poison Ivy!

Discussing celiac disease with people at work I had this light bulb moment - could it be DH. My mother's twin sister was dx 50 years ago and I have a niece with celiac disease (DM at age 9 and celiac disease at age 15).

Anyone have any similar symptoms - ideas. I do not know if it is in my head or not but I feel itchy all over sometimes.

Any help appreciated.

Marilyn

I think I am feeling the same thing. I keep breaking out on my feet and legs, and sometimes I itch all over. I don't know what it is either, so I guess I can't be of much help. But if there are two of us, it can't just be in our heads, right? :huh:

I am going to eat gluten (maybe I just had my last pizza) today and tomorrow and then get in for a blood test. I am sure my M.D. will not want to do it based on the rash so I am going to lie and say I have the typical GI symptoms. Given that if I come back with a negative I am going to consider the genetic testing.

Thanks for the response - I cannot believe it took a month to make the connection. I have not been dx with celiac but facilitate a support group as part of my work (partly begun because of my family history). One lady talks about feeling itchy on her scalp.
