It is very possible that you are still getting traces of gluten in your diet. You have to read all the lables. Caffine will not cause DH outbreaks. But be aware that it can take months for your outbreaks to get completely under control. Just 2 weeks into the diet you still have antibodies deposited under the skin and they will continue to erupt (though it will deminish) untill they are depleated.

Do you use iodized salt? That can cause a DH breakout. It can take up to 2 years for all the antibodies to leave the skin and even small amounts of gluten can activate them and cause a breakout. You also should check all your personal care products like shampoo, conditioner, lotions, makeup etc for gluten statis. Be assured though that eventually the breakouts will stop as long as you are gluten free. I had DH since childhood and at first when I went gluten free I would have an outbreak within hours of a glutening. Within a year the outbreak would be later and by the time I was gluten free for 2 years even with a severe glutening I just get a couple tiny blisters. I know it is hard to be patient but you will heal in time.
