Dh...does Anyone Have Pics?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Are we allowed to post pics on this forum? I'm curious to know if anyone has DH on their back and what it looks like.

Since I am going to see the doc on 8/31, I'm trying to not treat mine at all (I have an rx for Fluocinonide) and I am still eating lots of gluten rich foods. My back and my scalp are very itchy right now. My back hurts and burns from being so irritated.

DH or whatever this rash is, is not very sexy and I am wanting to get a diagnosis soon so I can get rid of it once and for all!

I went to yahoo's search and typed in dermatitis herpeformis and then when the results came up I clicked on 'images' here is a link to the page.

I had seen a lot of pics on line as well but my rash on my back and chest didn't look like the pics I saw. I did, see one today in your link, that resembles my rash. So thanks. This was helpful.

I get it.....on hands,feet,back of neck,elbows and knees i also get acne rosacea on my face which is not the best look for getting the fellas attention.....lol(good job i already have one eh?)It has a stinging ''nettle rash'' kind of feeling and comes up as water filled blisters which then burst and scab over...immensly itchy too.I will seek a skin specialist second opinion when i see my gastro results because there is treatment avail to run alongside a gluten free diet.

I have had this rash since my early teens and it was diagnosed as contact dermatitis when a lazy skin specialist found out i was a hairdresser and put 2 and 2 together coming up with '6'.I feel angry because now,at age 39 i also have Hypothyroidism and i'm convinced that if i was diaganosed years ago that wouldnt have come about.I dont have a firm diagnosis yet as i am wating for results of my Gasroscopy but i am convinced i am ceoliac because of the way gluten makes me feel......grrrr!

I used to have the large water filled blisters on my hands as a child and through my early twenties. VERY, VERY, VERY ITCHY!!! I would scratch or rub the skin off of my fingers it was so bad. I can also remember running my hands under scalding hot water to stop the itching. Crazy I know. My poor hands would crack and bleed and were so swollen.

I was diagnosed with eczema as a child then contact dermatitis as a teenager. The band-aids that I wore on my fingers were also not very sexy...

I too have rosecea which started in my early thirties.

I don't know if any of this is from gluten but I seem to have lots of symptoms.

I have until 8/31 to see the GI doc. So here's hoping. ;)
