3 Yrs Old Toddler And Husband With Possible Dh?

Recommended Posts

Hello

I have find out by skin allergy testing two week ago that I was allergic to wheat oats,yeast etc.. so possible Coeliac. I need more inverstigation. So far on gluten free diet and no more pain, bloating, diarrhea, lethargy etc..

Whilst looking on the coeliac website here in australia I learned about DH.

My husband Joe

My husband has Crohn's disease (autoimmunue disorder of the intestines) and psorasis (autoimmunue disorder of the skin)which seems to have clear up since we move to Australia from the UK.

Both conditions are heridetary and can be passed on.

My husband about a year ago started to have those small tiny blisters on the sole of his feet and now are also on his palms and fingers

"He has outbreaks of tiny, horribly-itchy wart/blister type bumps on his hands and sole of feet.He is 36Yrs old

They itch as they are coming "up" quite intensely, and continue to itch while they're "bumps". Then they tend to dry up and peel off leaving little circles of different layers of dry skin "edges" where the bumps had been. Those do not scar, as such, but he has had repeated outbreaks in the same areas which seem to have left his skin a little uneven or callousy in that area for a while.

They do not seem to "spread" from contact, but sometimes He has just one, and sometimes he'll start with one and have a whole series that start and stop at overlapping intervals on different fingers.. often on the sides, near the joint.

He also has a rash on his chest and back the doc said it was warts. Now i think it might be DH aswell but a different form of it.

Hygiene doesn't seem to affect them one way or another"

My 3 yrs old Daughter Elise

She has the same plantar tiny, horribly-itchy wart/blister type bumps on the sole of her feet. She complains that they itch a lot.

She hasn't got any medical condition yet apart from some constipation.

I will try to post some pictures, next time. They are both asleep right now.

Do I need to take them both to a dermatologist or/and start them on a gluten free diet.

The only positive outcome will be that to cook one meal per dinner, will save me a lot of time in the kitchen !! Smile although aur bank account will not think the same thing Crying or Very sad

Could you please respond to this post. Any comments would be really appreciative. Thank you. I really feel for both of them. Confused and wish I could help them.

appologies for bad english grammar, I am french.

Bonjour Sarah,

Since your husband has psoriasis, is it possible your husband and daughter have palmoplantar pustulosis (PPP)?

http://dermnetnz.org/scaly/palmoplantar-pustulosis.html

There is about a 1 in 6 chance that they also have gluten sensitivity - about 17% of people with psoriasis will eventually recover on a gluten-free diet. There have been numerous studies that show this. They could both be tested for antigliadin (AGA) antibodies. With this test positive, they may have gluten intolerance even without having full Celiac Disease or a positive TTg or EMA blood test.

There may be other conditions to examine, too. I have DH and have never had it on the soles of my feet or palms of my hands, but maybe someone else here has. Interestingly, my father has gluten sensitivity and psoriasis.

Best wishes!

April

They both sound like chronic celiac and are having problems because they are not gluten free. Have them tested immediately!!!!

Good luck... God Bless
