Reading more into this Celiac thing....I am now putting 2 and 2 together. About 10 years ago I had clear blisters (very itchy) on my feet. They were so painful after itching and just terrible. I thought maybe athletes foot? I dont really have that problem anymore....but I do get it on my hands sometimes.

My question is Celiac rash is typically on elbows, knees, buttocks...etc....can it happen anywhere?

I get itchy rashes on my legs both lower and upper. I get the itchy clear blister things on my hands. They are like deep. The more I itch the more it seems to show....I try not to pop them but the itching is unbarable sometimes. Then they scar up and look iky....

Your experiences please.

Are they like clear blisters....and very itchy? Where do you get them? Do they leave reddish purplish scars?

Yes you can have them any where. I get them on my knee's, elbow's, feet, hands, torso, inside my ears, my eye's, my private area, around my mouth, my arms & legs, in other words all over, lol. But as long as I stay TOTALLY gluten free I am totally clear of any rash. If I so much as get a crumb of bread, or kiss my grandchildren after they have eaten, or any type of contamination, I break out within 10 minutes. So of course I stay gluten free because it is so miserable. Not to mention the gut problems. Good luck, and I wish you the best. Lacey

I mostly get the blistery ones on my forearms and hands, mostly my right. I get a different looking rash in the groin area but both are triggered by gluten.

Looking at DH pics....makes me wonder if this is what I had experienced before. I remember for awhile I had what looks to be DH all over my shins. Very very itchy...I thought I had bugs.

I was recently diagnosed with celiac disease (April 2009). FOr teh past 8 years I"ve had a terrible itchy rash on my shins....derm's thought it was psoriasis. It just wouldn't go away.

Since going totally gluten free it is almost completely gone! This leads me to believe it is DH. I did not expect that going gluten free would solve the problem as I assumed it was just treatment resistant psoriasis

It sounds like DH to me. I have had blisters everywhere. Watery blisters that have come up in clusters or singlely. THey are very deep, very itchy, and sore to the touch. I have had them on my face, neck, scalp, ears, torso, arms, shins, lips, toes. fingers and vaginally. I've had them on the palms of my hands and the soles of my feet. Fortunately not all at once but anywhere they appear they are miserable. Since going gluten free I seldom have breakouts except for when I have an accidental glutening. Now they are pretty much confined to my forearms or hairline of my scalp.

Yes...this soooo sounds like me. I can get them in clusters and individually. They can pop up anywhere...very deep and itchy and sore like you say. Ugh....I need my insurance to kick and then find a doctor whom is willing to listen and give me the correct blood testing.

You can go to a dermatologist that is familiar with DH and DH testing (not all are) for a skin biopsy. THey test the skin surounding the blister area not the blister itself. If you have DH you are Gluten Sensitive or Intollerent or Allergic and you may or may not have Celiac Disease.

As with Celiac Disease they only way to really treat DH is to live a Gluten free lifestyle. There are some drugs but to me they are not worth the risk.

Doesn't the diagnosis of DH mean you do have celiac disease?

I by no means claim to be an expert on DH but I think the jury is out on this as much as they are on how "rare" Celiac Disease is. I should have stated may or may not have celiac disease of the gut. DH is considered celiac disease of the skin and not all people who have DH have gluten-sensitive enteropathy.

If you go to the AOCD site http://www.aocd.org/skin/dermatologic_dise...is_herpeti.html

it will tell you what I stated and that is what my Dr. told me.

IF you go to Celiac Spru Association http://www.csaceliacs.org/dh_defined.php

they will tell you it is a complication associated with Celiac Disease.

But does it really matter, you still need to live Gluten Free.
