Dh Vs Herpes

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

If DH gets its name because it is "herpes like", then how would you differentiate between the two if you sometimes have the rash on your thighs were they touch and on your buttocks where they touch? Genitals are not involved and no other symptoms other than pink ithy bumps that get itchier the more you scratch and don't turn into sores.

A dermotologist can give you a biopsy of the skin next to a lesion to look for antibodies. From the sounds of the location it is likely this is DH but a derm can tell you for sure.

Yeah, I was diagnosed by my derm with DH and diagnosed by my internal med doctor with Celiac's about 1 1/2 months ago. It just seems weird that it gets it name because it is herpes like when it doesn't seem to look anything like it. I was just curious what the reasoning was behind it.
