I was diagnosed with prurigo nodularis. She did tell me to continue to stay off of Gluten and wheat and any other associated grains since I had already been off for 6 weeks and was feeling better. I go for bloodwork in the morning to check my B12 and iron levels and thyroid. I wanted to post this since I do not believe I have read it anywhere here but I found it on Wiki-pedea and thought maybe others that could not identify their rash as blistery understood it does not have to be in order to be related to Celiacs

"Prurigo nodularis. Prurigo nodularis has been identified with coeliac diease."

Found that line quit interesting. She did say she felt as though I may be Gluten intolerant since this rash is common with this intolerance but that was before I found that line.

Im taking Hydroxyzine and a Corticosteroid cream for itch. I will post with future findings

It's also associated with DH.

If you try a low-iodine diet and it works it would be a strange coincidence.

Mast cells and neutrophils are seen in higher-than-normal levels in prurigo nodularis, so the cromolyn cream recipe on the chronic urticaria site may help.

Thank you for posting this. I bookmarked it so I could read more. Well I thought because she did not say DH I would help myself to some rock shrimp at lunch.I've noticed some slight swelling in my bumps since then and a they are starting to itch some this evening. That shrimp was good but not worth aggravating my rash. Which I have almost under control. My husband wants me to go for a 2nd opinion to get the skin biopsy done correctly. They did a punch biopsy on the lesion not beside it. anyway it did come back positive for PN. Once I get me labs back I am seeing another Dr. Well see what happens, in the meantime I'll stay gluten free it keeps my digestive system in check.

I would seriously keep up the low iodine diet along with gluten-free and take photos to show your second opinion doc. And document what happens when you eat iodine, gluten.

It may very well be Prurigo - caused by DH.

Also, try that cromolyn cream. If mast cells are involved it may bring relief.

Good luck!
