How Far Between Exposure & Dh Breakout?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how long it takes from the time of gluten exposure to the time of DH breakout? Does it happen right away? Can it be delayed a day or more?

I'm just trying to figure out what it getting me.

Also....how long does it take DH to go away after gluten has stopped?


Officially diagnosed Nov 2007

DH, osteoporosis, anemia

kidney & parathyroid problems

gluten-free since 2004 except for hidden gluten

My mom seems to have a reaction later on the same day--along with depression and mental confusion. Often for me my reaction is delayed by 24 hours, why I don't know. I have forgotten how long it took the DH to go away however it took me 3 months before my nails hardened etc. after becoming gluten free--minus of course the hidden glutens I didn't know about until recently.

Diagnosed celiac sprue as infant: failure to thrive & pneumonia-back on grains age 4. Began herbs 1971 combating chronic kidney disease/general ill health 1973. Avoid wheat family and "allergens" by 1980. Late 80's doc. diagnosed candida: cave-man diet. Diagnosed degraded myelin sheath 2006; need co-enzyme B vitamins. Discovered celiac fall 2007; finally told diagnosis as infant. Recently found I am salicylic acid intolerant. Ironically can't tolerate most herbs now. Can now eat brown rice & other gluten-free grains (except corn) & even maple syrup & now homeopathic medicine works! Am still exploring the shape of this elephant but I've made progress!

For me it depends on the exposure. If I accidently inhale flour or breading in a kitchen, I can break out in as short a time as 15 minutes. If I east something supposedly gluten-free or get some accidental cross contamination, it can take a few hours. Depending on the amount i'm exposed too, it seems to vary the severity of the dh and stomach ache.

Hope you cn figure it out

My experience has been that it can be within 24 hours, sometimes if I get enough it will occur within minutes but that hasn't happened in a few years. I also get hit with a deep 24 hour depression followed by a couple of weeks of anxiety. Ususally the gut stuff hits me 2 to 3 days after exposure. I should also note that after a couple of years gluten free so many of the antibodies had left my skin that I now get only one or two very tiny little blisters that heal within a week. Before that the blisters would be severe and last over a month.

From what I can tell I THINK my reactions are pretty much within 24hrs but I'm just questioning my latest breakout. I'm guessing it was just CC that got me but it happened in so many different places on my body- UG! I've noticed that my other breakouts seem to linger for weeks and just wondered if this was normal.

Does anything else make DH breakout other than gluten? I stay clear of iodine b/c I'm allergic.

I seem to blister up with table salt or if I take ibuprofen. Not sure how long they last....looooong time. Seems I 'm still forever getting isolated blisters popping up here and there.

i also blister usually in about 15 min to 1hr. Watch table salt or anything with iodine in it , I have heard celiac people are sensitive to iodine. sistergoldenhair

With me, I can break out within 30-90 minutes from exposure; however, I continue to break out in additional blisters over the next 3-4 days. The darned things last about 4-6 weeks before they completely heal. I get them on my face and soles of my feet. The feet tend to heal in 7-10 days, but my face always seems to take forever.
