How To Get Tested?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

A family member of mine currently has what we believe is DH all over her hands. How does she get tested? Who does she need to see? Does the rash have to be in a certain state to take a sample?

Thanks.

She would see a dermatologist. The biopsy needs to be taken from intact skin next to an active lesion. Make sure you tell the doctor that you want them to look specifically for DH as a special test needs to be preformed on the biopsy to find the antibodies.
