Questions On Dh Biopsy/blood Test

Recommended Posts

Decided to do a Gluten challenge with my family and myself and get some more testing done, now after a week I have blisters on my fingers. The area tingles and itches like crazy. I had this happen to me about 8 years ago - these blisters spread all over my fingers on both hands and they lasted for about 5 weeks. Soooo, If this sounds like DH, then what does it cost to get a biopsy done? What is the blood test called that is done? Is the blood test expensive?
