i only have a rash on my calves. it itches SO badly; small red bumps then it looks like flakey around it.

would i go to to a dermatologist? a few years ago when i was gluten free i only had a rash on my thighs and my derm had no clue. any ideas?

I take it you're not gluten-free right now? The only way the derm. can tell if it's DH is from a biopsy. Do you have celiac or a gluten intolerance? You should go to a GI doc and get some blood tests done before the biopsy to see if you have celiac, because DH=celiac.
