A Few Questions About This

Recommended Posts

Ok, I don't know if I have dermatitis herpetiformis because I don't think I have gotten a good description of it. Here is what I have, I only seem to get them on my head and some times by bottom. I only get a few at a time and they start off just very painful spots. You can't see them, sometimes they get red but then they get so painful I pop them and they just get a little p%$#@# and then they bleed. I also get little white bumps on my lets and back of my arms, anyone else get them? Anyone else know about the other bumps I have? Thanks

I am new here and also newly diagnosed. I was diagnosed at Thanksgiving. I have started having these also. I get one or two on my face everyweek, and yesterday I had a breakout of several on my neck and around my collar bone. They don't itch, but they do look like boils or papuls. Like you nothing seems to come out but some fluid. They do get very sore sometimes.

i think that dermatitis herpetiformis is extremely itchy. i think it can show up in a number of places, but the most common are elbows, knees and the bum. it is usually symetrical on both sides of your body, but i'm sure there are exceptions.

Are they small spots or larger? Or both. I would get small clusters (3 to 5) of small blister. sometime just one, but they itch really bad. They eventually turn red and go away. Now that I am gluten free I dont get them to often, usually after my digestive tract tells me I have been glutened.

I have also had the really sore spots, I figured they were boils....but I dont really know what causes them.
