How Long?

Recommended Posts

Any idea how long these itchy bumps will last? It's been 4 months now. They used to come and go in about 3 weeks, but I've had this traveling itching since March. Started on my head, went down my neck, and now on my arms.

Have you eliminated iodine from your supplements and diet? The iodine can keep the antibodies active in skin. Also be sure you have eliminated gluten ingredients from your toiletries and be very careful about CC. It can take a while for lesions to heal but hopefully you will stop getting new ones soon.

I had to go to a dermatologist to get a prescription for Dapsone. It can heal them in as little as 48 hrs. I can tell a huge difference and I am only on my 4th dose.

I would like to know also, how long does it take after gluten-free to have nice skin again? I think my oldest bump was a month ago. Does anyone know if taking Zinc supplement will help with wound healing?

Thanks,

Megan
