Dermatitis Herpitiformis?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone think this looks like Dermatitis Herpitiformis?

I have seen three doctors who are stumped.. the last one last night said he would get me into a dermatologist today (the quickest I could make an appt was April 1st) and I do have an appt later today but looking for some more insight and I was led here...

It's starting to itch and burn, today is day #17 of this rash or whatever it is. My kids, nor no one else I know has it.

These are from last night.
