Question About A Skin Spot

Recommended Posts

We have only been seriously working on cutting out gluten for about a month.

I just noticed today that this 1 single but very annoying and itchy bump I have had on my leg for quite a while is nearly gone. Do you think this is a coincidence or could this be a small case of the DH.

It was about the size of a bad pimple. It itched and burned like the world was coming to an end. Today it is just a mild discoloration on my leg.

Thoughts?!?!?

Hard to say. Usually DH is symmetrical - if you have it on one leg, you would have it on the other.

For example, pre-gluten-free, I would get DH on both right and left elbows. Sometimes it would first appear on one elbow, but the other would match it within 12-24 hours.

HOWEVER (big however)

Now that I am gluten free, sometimes my DH comes back lightly as just 1 spot on one elbow. This normally happens following the symptoms of an accidental glutening. I have to assume that this has to do with consuming traces of gluten. I think my antibody levels have fallen off so much that I just don't have enough of the antibodies in my skin to make more of a reaction than that.
