How Quickly Does Your Rash Appear/get Worse?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have a small but persistent rash, probably eczema and not Dh (it's usually not itchy or blistery), which definitely seems to be connected to my diet -- it has only started to get better since going gluten-free. It seems like it is also sensitive to other foods, however, since it is still coming and going periodically; the problem is that I can't seem to figure out which foods trigger it. I'm wondering how quickly you see your rashes flare up after you eat gluten or other trigger foods. Is it immediate, or is there a delay of a few days?

Thanks for your thoughts!

I'm a new self-diagnosed DH so this probably isn't very accurate, but when I have eaten trace amounts I will feel the results at night. I will wake up in the middle of the night with extreme itching of my eyes, arms, breasts, armpits and legs most often. Waking up with extreme anxiety is also a symptom of contamination. I will develop the blisters usually overnight and wake up realizing I have 1-2 more blisters than I did the day before.

I will also wake up and the skin around my eyes will be very, very puffy and itchy and red.
